The Allure of the Cayman Islands for Japanese Investors
Japanese investors have long used domestic trusts to execute their investment programs.

Maples Fiduciary's Senior Vice President, Abali Hoilett and Vice President, Sabrina Foster, explore why the Cayman Islands continues to be the jurisdiction of choice for Japanese investment managers, institutional and individual investors, the features and benefits of the Cayman Islands unit trust, and the importance of strong governance and oversight of these vehicles.
