Letters of Credit


The facility provides the following benefits:

  • A competitive all-inclusive rate (issuance & confirmation fee) subject to a minimum fee.
  • Quick arrangement time frames, typically within five business days.
  • Can be secured through any combination of Cash, Equities, Bonds, US$ Treasury Bills or with any of
    the Butterfield family of Mutual Funds (all subject to margin requirements - see below).
  • Confirmed through a NAIC approved bank.


Availability: This facility is available to all Cayman Islands incorporated insurance companies, or other
local businesses that require a clean, irrevocable Standby Letter of Credit.


Is the process difficult? No it is not. Whilst there is a credit approval process and we will require
audited financial statements, along with other standard corporate documents, our process is streamlined with your business in mind.
