SIBL (SECURITIES INVESTMENT BUSINESS LAW (2011 Revision) “the SIBL”)
The SIBL applies to all entities organised or established in the Cayman Islands which are engaged in the course of securities investment business, whether or not that business is actually carried out in or from the Cayman Islands.

Under the SIBL “securities investment business” includes dealing in securities, arranging deals in securities,  managing securities and advising on securities and “securities” are widely defined to include shares, partnership interests, units in unit trusts, debt instruments, warrants, options, futures and contracts for differences.

All entities to whom the SIBL Law applies are required to hold a licence appropriate to the securities investment business they intend to conduct in the Cayman Islands, save for those falling within certain exemptions detailed under Schedule 3 (Excluded Activities) or Schedule 4 (Excluded Persons). Persons engaged in securities investment business must hold either a:

Securities Investment Business Licence, or be Registered as an Excluded Person.

Applications for a licence are made to the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (“CIMA”) in the prescribed form and annual licence fees range from US$2,500 to US$10,000 depending on the category of licence required.

These categories are:
Broker Dealer
Broker Member
Securities Manager
Securities Advisor
Securities Arranger
Market Maker

Anyone who carries on or purports to carry on securities investment business without the appropriate licence is guilty of a criminal offence. The penalties on conviction are severe: up to a year’s imprisonment and a fine of US$125,000 and, in the case of a continuing offence, a fine of US$12,500 for each day during which the offence continues.
