What safeguards do you have in place to ensure the quality of the new clients you work for?

Published 22 November 2018 by InfoCapital N.V. Advisory & Management

Curaçao acquired autonomous status within the Kingdom of the Netherlands eight years ago, and is one of the premier (and oldest) international financial centres in the world. It offers a politically stable jurisdiction and is home to a diverse group of leading financial institutions. Supervision by the Central Bank as well as by the Supervisory Committee governing the financial and fiduciary industry ensures transparency, security and stability in the sector.

Curaçao currently complies with all the requirements of the EU Code of Conduct against harmful tax practices, and has adopted, among other things, the EU Savings Directive as well as measures against money laundering and the financing of terrorism. As an accepted jurisdiction by the OECD and FATF, and apart from its Qualified Intermediary (QI) status awarded by the United States Internal Revenue, Curaçao strives to remain an internationally compliant jurisdiction, evidenced by its ever-growing network of bilateral tax information exchange (TIEA) and double taxation treaties (DTA).

InfoCapital provides a broad range of services to mostly corporate, but also high-net-worth clients around the world. We ensure that all entities serviced by our firm are fully compliant in their relevant jurisdictions. The strength of our alliances is based on the personalised service and trusted relationship we have with our clients and partners alike.

For all client inquiries, an in-depth KYC and customer due diligence (CDD) will be done as part of a risk-based approach. The CDD investigations are performed through screenings, international database scans, sanction and other monitoring lists, as well as verifying IDs and other documents. InfoCapital will also consult its international and local network for additional references.
