The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority

The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority is the regulated body acting the role of the central bank. The authority is responsible for issuing the Caymanian Dollar and holds sufficient assets (i.e. US Treasuries) to back all the local notes and coinage in circulation.

The principal objectives of the Authority, as stated in the Law, are:

  • to issue and redeem currency notes and coins; and to manage the Currency Reserve;
  • to promote and maintain monetary stability;
  • to promote and maintain a sound financial system;
  • to advise Government on banking and monetary matters;
  • to provide assistance to overseas regulatory authorities.

In March 2003 the Authority became operationally independent under the Monetary Authority Law (2003 Revision). Independence significantly enhanced the ability of the Authority to meet international standards of supervising, accountability and transparency, and has more clearly defined its functions, duties, powers and obligations.
