Offshore Vaulting and Storage in the Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands are well-developed with an extensive history as an international financial center. The capital city of George Town is one of the world’s largest offshore banking centers. The Byzantium facility is built in the heart of this financial network located on Grand Cayman. Byzantium’s location is in one of the most sophisticated and dynamic financial centers in the world, ranking up with New York, London, Tokyo and Hong Kong.

The Cayman Islands currently hosts 206 banks. Fifteen banks are licensed to conduct business with both domestic (Cayman-based) and international clients. The other 191 banks operate mainly on an international basis, with limited domestic activity. The Cayman Islands are also one of the top captive insurance centers, second only to Bermuda in managing insurance risks. For example, the Cayman Islands have an estimated $1.5 trillion in banking liabilities. George Town provides a proven network of international financial institutions that conduct gold and silver transactions on a global basis. Byzantium can efficiently and accurately trade both gold and silver in physical and financial form. The Cayman Islands are tax free with no income tax, capital gains tax, property tax or inheritance tax. The Cayman Islands is an offshore jurisdiction, so all associated benefits apply.
