2 signs that secrecy is still good business: Cayman registration income up 50%; Citywealth mag preparing 2014 awards

Between May and July of 2013, the Cayman Islands General Registry collected 50% more in fees than in the same period of 2012. According to the article in CNS Business, the Cayman Financial Service  Ministry will also “be working with the industry on Cayman’s action plan to deal with beneficial ownership of offshore companies, which arose from the UK’s G8 agenda.”

In the meantime, City Wealth magazine is preparing for the third edition of its International Financial Centre Awards in London on the 23rd of January 2014.

Jurisdictions covered are:

• Bahamas

@US and UK govts, EU, G8, G20, OECD and co: whatever you’re doing about tax havens, it doesn’t seem to be working yet.
