The Cayman Islands are a group of islands in the Caribbean and an overseas territory of the United Kingdom. After the discovery by Columbus on May 10, 1503, the archipelago was originally named “Las Tortugas” after the turtles that lived on it. But it wasn’t until the 17th century that the islands were settled from Jamaica. When Jamaica became independent, the islanders made a different decision: they became a colony of the British Crown and were granted a governor. The Cayman Islands have had the status of a British crown colony with internal self-government since 1962. The Cayman Islands have been a member of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) since 2002.

The Cayman Islands are also known as the “Switzerland of the Caribbean”, because this is where most of the banks, including the largest German ones, have local branches; This status is favored by the tax exemption prevailing here, which made the capital, George Town, the fifth largest financial center in the world.

The Cayman Islands have seen a meteoric rise. From a small Caribbean island south of Cuba, they have become the fifth largest financial center in the world. 235 banks, 735 insurance companies, 9,000 hedge funds and 91,712 companies have a seat or a mailbox here. The assets were $ 1.60 trillion in 2011. Of the 56,000 residents, 24,000 are expats, the majority of whom are well-paid bankers, lawyers or insurance brokers.
