CARA is mandatory
Who We Are
CARA supervises, monitors and regulates firms of attorneys-at-law conducting relevant financial business (‘RFB’) for anti-money laundering (‘AML’) compliance and related fields.
What We Do
Our purpose is to ensure a high standard of AML compliance across the legal sector within the Cayman Islands. By doing so, CARA will assist the Cayman Islands in complying with international standards and obligations and enhance public trust and confidence in the legal profession.
