As one of the top ten financial centres in the world, it is fair to say that the ever changing landscape of regulatory compliance within the Cayman Islands is vital to the success of the jurisdiction.
The far outdated stigma of Cayman being a “tax haven” is long gone, as this tax neutral island is home to some of the largest financial services organisations in the world and in turn some of the strictest regulations within the industry.
From annual FATCA and CRS reporting to ongoing KYC work and AML investigations, the job market for Compliance in the Cayman Islands holds a vast array of diversity and breadth at all levels. As the regulatory requirements for both Cayman and our international clients continue to increase, so do the resources needed to ensure that teams of experts are in place to monitor and uphold the standards required.
SteppingStones are fortunate enough to work closely with multiple businesses across the sector who seek to attract and retain talent at every level across compliance and risk. This is both on a temporary and permanent basis as the need for short-term project teams to be built has been an increasing trend.
In terms of qualifications, experience and attributes, across all levels Compliance Professionals need to be detail-focused above all else. For the more senior positions the ACAMS qualification is highly regarded in the jurisdiction, as is other relevant offshore experience.
