Mission Statement                                                           CIMA LinkedIn Connect Button

To protect and enhance the reputation of the Cayman Islands as an International Financial Centre by fully utilising a team of highly skilled professionals and current technology, to carry out appropriate, effective and efficient supervision and regulation in accordance with relevant international standards and by maintaining a stable currency, including the prudent management of the currency reserve.


Vision Statement

Committed to continually enhancing the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority’s position as a financial services regulator of EXCELLENCE, consistent with the jurisdiction’s standing as a leading International Financial Centre.




(Wednesday, 7 January 2015) CIMA has launched a new online portal for electronic submission of financial services information which entities regulated by the Authority are required to submit. It’s called Regulatory Enhanced Electronic Forms Submission (REEFS). 

Selected Industry partners have been invited to test the system, which will be phased in gradually.  The first phase of this new process has already begun for persons whose information is intended for the Insurance Supervision and Fiduciary Services divisions.  

Persons filing financial returns, change requests and new licence applications with the Banking Supervision and the Investments and Securities divisions will be added in the second phase of the project, which is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2015.
