The Cook Islands is dedicated to its international financial services industry. Whether from a regulatory or development perspective, the Cook Islands provides clients and service providers with the resources to increase the value of their Cook Islands-based corporate or wealth management business in their overall planning.
With increased regulatory requirements from international financial oversight groups, the Cook Islands has created a robust regulatory framework through the Financial Supervisory Commission and the Financial Intelligence Unit. Both regulate domestic and international financial entities and activities. The Business Trade Investment Board provides valuable information on business development in the Cook Islands.
