On 6 April 2018, CIMA released a notice (the "Notice") in which it addressed three points raised by Cayman Finance in relation to unclear provisions of Guidance Notes on the Prevention and Detection of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing in the Cayman Islands: (i) the designation / appointment of natural persons as MLROs, DMLROs and AMLCOs for investment funds; (ii) the need to carry out a gap analysis where AML functions have been delegated to a service provider outside the Cayman Islands and where relying on Eligible Introduction Letters; and (iii) whether subscription payments by an investor from a Cayman Islands bank, or equivalent jurisdiction bank, negated the need for full AML verification.
In response to the Notice, a Cayman Finance working group, including a Maples and Calder representative, met with CIMA on 11 April 2018 for the purpose of discussing the practical implementation – both of the three points raised in the Notice and a number of other issues.
