Launching a Capital Markets Broker-dealer
in the Cayman Islands

Frank Nagy Financial Services offers a turn-key solution to set up a Capital markets Broker-dealer in the Cayman Islands.

The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis defines capital markets as a; "financial market that brings buyers and sellers together to trade stocks, bonds, currencies, and other financial assets. Capital markets include the stock market and the bond market. They help people with ideas to become entrepreneurs and help small businesses grow into big companies. They also give folks like you and me opportunities to save and invest for our futures."

In the financial services arena, financial companies participate in the primary private markets, as opposed to public ones. Typically, this is referring to investment banks, private equity, venture capital, and hedge fund firms. In many cases, broker-dealers are involved with capital markets that engage with primary offerings of debt and equity supported by investment banks through traditional underwriting.


The following is a shortlist of activities which may be carried out by a Cayman Islands securities investment business (Investment Management - Broker-Dealer):

- Dealing in securities: buying, selling, subscribing for or underwriting securities as an agent.

- Arranging deals in securities: Making arrangements in buying, selling, subscribing for or underwriting securities.

- Managing securities.

- Advising on securities: Advising a person on securities.
