The use of offshore vehicles for international financial transactions is becoming more and more popular in the Asia Pacific region. Among them the Cayman Islands is now the hot jurisdiction for offshore companies and commercial work, as well as the choice now to set up an offshore financial center.

The Cayman Islands has positioned itself as the number one destination for offshore legal operations. It is the market leader in the formation of mutual funds – estimated to house about 75% of world’s hedge funds and nearly half the industry’s estimated US$1.1 trillion of asset under management followed by Bermuda.

This is evidenced by the fact that Hong Kong tycoon, Mr. Li Ka-Shing, unveiled in January 2015 a sweeping restructuring of his business empire, switching its base of incorporation to the Cayman Islands from Hong Kong for more flexibility in re-organization.

Cayman Islands Company and Commercial Law is:

  • The first Cayman Islands Commercial Law publication for offshore companies and commercial work in the market
  • Published by Christopher Bickley – partner at Conyers Dill & Pearman, the leading offshore law firm in the Cayman Islands with offices in Hong Kong, Singapore and London
  • A comprehensive coverage of latest policies set by CIMA, and summaries a number of important recent cases decided by the Cayman Islands Courts in connection with shareholder rights, directors’ duties, and insolvency
The Cayman Islands vehicles involved all aspects of international commercial transactions including: private equity, IPOs, mergers & acquisitions, and corporate finance transactions. This publication will also cover recent trends in Cayman Islands company law including IPOs of Cayman Islands companies and “go private” transactions.
