CIMA launches new website

| 04/12/2009

(CNS): Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA) says their new website allows immediate access to information in relation to all aspects and functions of the authority, and follows a year of intense redevelopment and consultation with stakeholders to create a more user friendly domain. Launched in mid-November, the site is intended to be used as a primary communication tool for those doing business with CIMA. The site has a more modern layout with easier navigation, direct emailing capability to individual divisions, and additional search tools, making it easier to find documents. Users can now also sign up for web alerts so they can be notified when new material is posted.

“The goal of this endeavour was to assist our clients and the public who use our site to more easily gather information, stay abreast of regulatory requirements and developments, and locate the various documents used in business with CIMA,” explains Public Relations Executive, Ms. Joan Scott, who headed the website development team. “Although our prior site had much of the same information, it is now presented in a straightforward format which also highlights some of the previously under-emphasised aspects of CIMA’s work, such as enforcement and international cooperation. We trust that our clients will find the new design much more compatible with their needs.”

The site also continues providing aggregate statistical information, lists of regulated entities in each sector, the ability to search for individual authorised entities, as well as the latest CIMA public notices, media releases, and publications, among other information. The site was developed with the assistance of US-based business development and web design group Comsys.

“CIMA’s website is a key resource for the Authority’s stakeholders, who are a diverse audience,” comments Managing Director Cindy Scotland. “In redeveloping the site, we found out from clients their main frustrations in using the old domain. The most common issue was difficulty finding information. We addressed this by organising what is a vast amount of data into subject areas rather than by CIMA divisions, putting the most requested information up front, and providing multiple means for users to find what they want. Feedback thus far has been very positive.”

Scotland added: “As the main regulator of one of the world’s leading financial centres, it is imperative that CIMA’s site reflects our high regulatory standards by providing timely, relevant information and creating an efficient access point for this jurisdiction.”

All are encouraged to visit the site at and offer feedback for future improvements.
