Community Members

Meet others, like you, who have made the move and are operating a genuine offshore physical presence in the Cayman Islands with Cayman Commodities & Derivatives City. 

We established a physical presence in the Cayman Islands as it was important for us to be closer to our US office.

The beaches are awesome and the work-life-balance is so important for our team's productivity.

Will Carter
Chief Operating Officer at WBM Corp SEZC

We were one of the first 50 businesses to establish a business within Cayman Enterprise City.

We were looking at jurisdictions all over the world and Cayman offered really big factors for us. The tax neutrality has allowed us to build out the business.

Kyle Floyd
Chief Executive Officer at SilverStream SEZC

The legal framework in Cayman is similar to the US.

Making it easier to integrate an offshore entity into its US parent corporation. The tax neutral jurisdiction also enables us to reinvest more of our revenue back into the company.
