Attached is the May 2021 publication of the Technical Brief for Investment Funds, a newsletter developed by the Loeb Smith Cayman Islands Investment Funds Technical Team.

  • FATCA/CRS Summary and Update
  • Considerations for Directors of Cayman Regulated Open-ended Funds
  • Cayman Islands’ Rule on Cybersecurity for Regulated Entities
  • New Administrative Fines for breach of Regulatory Laws.
