Home to an impressive array of financial products and services, there are many investment vehicles managed from here that help facilitate the flow of global capital. Currently, more than 9,800 hedge funds are registered in this jurisdiction alone, an estimated 60-80% of the total market. Industry segments include captive insurance, banking, trusts, funds, companies and partnerships incorporation, structured finance, vessel and aircraft registration, and the Cayman Islands Stock Exchange.

Existing investors: Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, UBS, KPMG, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), RBC Royal Bank, and Scotia Bank.

Tourism

The Cayman tourism product continues to flourish in the face of a general contraction in traveller's disposable income; a true testament to its quality and strong customer demand. From adventures with sting rays to stunning dives and unforgettable encounters with our warm and friendly natives, there's a little bit of everything to go around. Industry segments include nature based and heritage themed attractions, time share condos, villas, full-service hotels and niche boutique-style accommodations.

Existing investors: Ritz Carlton, Westin, Marriott, Comfort Suites and the Ramada
