As part of its long term strategy to grow the international financial services industry through new services and new client markets, the Parliament of the Cook Islands recently passed the Captive Insurance Act 2013. This Act follows the introduction of Foundations legislation in June 2012.
The Minister responsible when introducing the legislation stated that “The Government has made a commitment to diversifying our economy by encouraging, strengthening and promoting our financial services sector. The passing of the Captive Insurance Act will increase business opportunities and is an important step in the growth of this key
industry to our economy.”
