A fiat bank account is still a must-have for most businesses. Our Bank Account opening service helps you with the preparation and submission of the application to speed up the process of getting your entity all banked. Our fee is capped provided we can obtain all necessary KYC documents from you.
ADD-ON: Company Crypto Account
A crypto currency exchange account for your company is indispensable if you want to hold your cryptocurrencies through the right legal entity. Our Crypto Account opening service helps you with the preparation and submission of the application to open a crypto account on behalf of your new entity, which is typically subject to the same type of KYC documentation as the opening of a fiat bank account.

We can add extra shareholders to your Cayman Ltd and onboard them including full due diligence for only USD 250 per additional shareholder.

Annual maintenance of your company is paid for each year in advance and includes a registered agent and address for your company, and its annual filing. Add-ons include corporate shareholders, nominee services, and accounting services.
REQUIRED REGISTERED AGENT AND LOCAL ADDRESS
Your company will need a local agent and registered address in Cayman. For only USD 1,600 per year, we will assign you a qualified registered agent and registered address, and submit your annual filing.
REQUIRED: FULLY-ENCRYPTED FILESHARING
For enhanced privacy and as a precaution against identity theft, we require our clients to use a snoop-free, end-to-end encrypted Tresorit™ folder to share sensitive documents and information with us.
ADD-ON: Corporate Nominee Director
Our Nominee Services also include the appointment of corporate director(s) to your entity, creating an extra layer of distance between you as controller and the company. Our Corporate Directors act under a general power of attorney. RECOMMENDED ADD-ON: Add a special power of attorney to have your Nominee act on specific, ad hoc instructions such as bank or crypto transactions.
ADD-ON: Nominee Shareholder
Our Nominee Shareholder service offers privacy and asset protection in jurisdictions with a public register of companies which typically includes details of companies' shareholders including residential address. Whilst a Nominee Shareholder would still require you to comply with KYC as the company's Ultimate Beneficial Owner, it does offer privacy and can shield assets from preying eyes and/or creditors.

Overview Cayman ELC
A Cayman vehicle remains unrivalled as a holding or a single-asset purpose vehicle. It is also the core piece in any credible hedge- or crypto fund setup.
The Cayman Islands enjoy key advantages as a jurisdiction over its rivals:
It has a stable regulatory environment based on English legal precedent and caselaw, and benefits from a well-functioning Courts system;
Its speed and cost compare favourably to other jurisdictions;
It is tax neutral;
It is perceived as a respectable jurisdiction as an early adopter of FATCA, CRS and AML standards, and is trusted by both investors and principals alike;
It allows for great flexibility as there is no need for Cayman-based directors, administrators, managers or custodians;
It has a high concentration of legal, tax and corporate governance expertise;
Finally, it crucially benefits from its historic access to the US dollar banking network.
