Banking in Belize

While Belize offers attractive financial solutions in offshore banking for global investors, it also offers extremely high levels of security and stability guaranteed by the Central Bank of Belize, which is the regulatory body for all banking institutions in the country. One of the reasons for this is the reserve requirements enforced by the Central Bank. It requires all banks to hold reserves that are about three times the reserves required to be held by banks in the United States, Canada & the EU. Caye International Bank ensures its reserves always exceeds the legal minimum reserves, making it one of the top-rated offshore banks in the region.

Belize is considered to be a stable democracy with currency linked to the US dollar and a zero-tax regime. There are no currency exchange controls in Belize meaning that money may be deposited and withdrawn at any time and in any currency without restriction. The country is one of the top international jurisdictions for off shore investments in Central America.
