As one of the world's largest offshore financial centers, the Cayman Islands has long been an exceptionally favorable jurisdiction for companies to register their business. In an effort to further strengthen investor confidence and ensure that Cayman holds its position as a leading destination for investment fund formation, the Cayman Islands government introduced two new laws: the Private Funds Bill 2020 and the Mutual Funds (Amendment) Bill 2020.
Both laws introduce a requirement to register certain open- and close-ended funds with the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA). As a result, entities that have been incorporated, registered or formed in Cayman may have to meet new regulatory obligations in order to continue operations there.
In this webinar, our subject experts explain the new rules in detail, including the steps you need to take to ensure compliance.
