If you are an experienced trader or investment advisor then starting a broker-dealer that can successfully trade in the fixed income MTN/bond market may be an opportunity to consider.

A broker-dealer (i.e. B/D) registered in the Cayman Islands may receive a request from its counter-party buyer/customer to structure an MTN note or plain vanilla bond for them. The Cayman B/D would reach out to their top tier financial institution, whom they have an open line distributor relationship with to structure the note for them.

The B/D would receive and redeliver the same structured bond/notes, repriced by the Cayman B/D, on the same day (or T+2 depending on time zones) to its counter-party/customer's custodian and realize a risk-less profit spread.

Also, there are no minimum equity capitalization requirements for an excluded Cayman Islands securities investment business (i.e. broker-dealer).

A broker-dealer firm registered in the Cayman Islands is a company that facilitates investment transactions for its clients. For this service, the broker-dealer is compensated through commissions that are based on investment transactions made on the client's behalf (ex. equities, bonds, MTNs, structured notes, forex, options, and commodities).

A fully compliant global investment management broker-dealer (registered with the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority - "CIMA") can accept accounts from high net-worth/sophisticated citizens or residents of all countries (subject to local regulations) except citizens or residents of those countries or regions that are on the sanction list of the US Office of Foreign Asset Controls or similar lists.
