Investing in the Cook Islands? What you need to know

Invest In The Cook Islands

Invest in a safe and stable economy – the Cook Islands.

If you’re looking for an alternative place to live or invest your hard earned wealth, then look no further than the Cook Islands.  The Cook Islands offer a safe, stable and secure environment in which to do business. The Islands have a parliamentary democracy based on the Westminster model, with a British legal system founded on judicial independence. The Cook Islands has had self-government since 1965 but remains a state in ‘free association’ with New Zealand. A well educated, English-speaking workforce, a soundly regulated financial system, modern infrastructure and a thriving business community enables the Cook Islands to be a safe investment opportunity.
