Anti-Money Laundering Statement
Bank Cainvest, its directors, management and staff are committed to combating the use or abuse of the Bank or its facilities for the purpose of financial crime, including fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing.
International regulatory pressures on banks to combat money laundering and terrorist financing have intensified at an unprecedented rate. Cayman in particular has enacted stringent legislation to combat financial crime.
To protect the integrity of the world's financial systems and to ensure all of our clients have free access to the global payments settlement networks, the Bank strictly enforces and complies with all of the Core Principles on Effective Bank Supervision.
Bank Cainvest, like all international banks, is subject to a wide range of legal obligations to ensure that proceeds of unlawful activities do not end up in accounts at our Bank. If such activity is suspected, we will deal with those funds as per our obligations. All reputable international banks operate subject to a common set of principles and legal standards. Under Cayman Islands legislation, we can freeze and/or close accounts at our own discretion if we have knowledge that an account has been used for an unlawful activity. Moreover, we cannot in any manner aid, abet or otherwise assist our clients in violating the law.
Our Terms and Conditions clearly provide a requirement and undertaking from each of our clients to comply with all applicable laws relating to money laundering and proceeds of crime, to acknowledge that Bank Cainvest is subject to KYC / anti-money laundering obligations, and to fully cooperate with the Bank in discharging its obligations under Applicable Laws and banking practices.
Bank Cainvest is firmly committed to maintaining a "squeaky clean" customer base and its vigorous Know-Your-Customer and Due Diligence procedures are designed to ensure that the Bank deals only with Legitimate Customers, performing Legitimate Banking Transactions. The Bank will not be a party to or in any manner handle or process funds, which may be proceeds of unlawful activities.
