Investing in the Cayman Islands

Invest in Cayman Islands PropertyWith no direct taxation, the Cayman Islands is a thriving offshore financial center where residents have enjoyed a prospering economy for many years. Growth in population and tourism fuels the success of investments, making local real estate a profitable venture. You can enjoy tax-free status with reputable legal and accounting professionals readily available to advise you on your offshore investments.

Cayman’s intellectual resources in monetary fields are the envy of the world, with few other international financial centers coming close to matching our pool of talented professionals. British Dependency status assures investors of our stability, with Cayman being a signatory to international treaties and conventions that attract the world’s most respected firms and investors.

Our real estate market is uniquely attractive to those looking for an overseas holiday getaway or a retirement residence. For foreign investors, it can offer a solid capital return on their investment, as well as the chance to own a secluded piece of “paradise” in the Caribbean. With both residential and commercial investment opportunities available, you can find anything from a secluded cottage in the East End to a luxury condominium on our world-famous Seven Mile Beach. We have modern, secure infrastructure and a stringent building code. There are no restrictions on foreign ownership, and a modern land registration system is run by the Government’s Department of Lands and Survey. A stamp duty is payable on transfers of property, and is a one-time fee.
