This paper reviews key findings of the detailed assessment of the Observance of Standards and Codes in the Financial Sector of the Cayman Islands. Banks in the Cayman Islands operate within a well-defined prudential regulatory framework, generally in accordance with Basel standards, that is, largely modeled after the framework currently in use in the United Kingdom. The two-tiered required minimum risk capital standards are significantly above those required by the Basel Capital Accord and are applied in practice based primarily on the perceived differences in risk related to bank ownership.

Jersey’s macroeconomic performance is generally satisfactory. Unemployment is low, and the trend growth rate and inflation have been satisfactorily examined. A Detailed Assessment of the Observance of the Basel Core Principles for Effective Banking Supervision Report on Jersey was also done. The legal system, which is broadly based on common law with French and Norman elements, is highly developed. The authorities have substantially adequate powers to direct, intervene in, and close a troubled financial institution.

This paper presents the Financial System Stability Assessment Report on the Isle of Man (IOM). Financial sector regulation and supervision are generally of a high standard, and supervisory efforts are concentrated in those areas most relevant to the activities of financial institutions on the IOM. The Financial Supervision Commission (FSC) faces a conundrum because the major banks are subsidiaries of large international financial groups, to which they provide financing. The FSC is reconsidering to balance prudential requirements for liquidity and exposure to related parties against business needs that entail high exposures to the parent.

Jersey has put in place a comprehensive and robust Antimoney Laundering/Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) legal framework with a high level of compliance with almost all aspects of the Financial Action Task Force recommendations. The paper discusses a Detailed Assessment of Observance of AML/CFT report on Jersey. Both money laundering and financing of terrorism are criminalized largely in line with the international standard, and Jersey has implemented the provisions effectively.
