Belize Securities License

Belize is an independent parliamentary constitutional monarchy within the British Commonwealth. The nation has long been known for its financial stability, pegging its local currency directly to the volatility of the United States dollar. In recent years, the government of Belize has made largely successful efforts to transition the focus of the nation’s economy from staple commodities to financial services.

Belize has long been recognized as a tax haven, offering zero taxes on offshore profits. The country’s banking infrastructure is also popular among sophisticated professionals who find the relative privacy of Belize to be largely unrivaled. Moreover, the nation’s international business corporation regime and court structure makes it one of the most attractive locations for asset protection.

Belize is an ideal location for promoters of Securities businesses. Belize offers a Trading in Securities License which covers all related Securities activity, including acting as a broker of equity and debt securities – including United States listed equities. The licensure is recognized world-wide and many top international Securities broker-dealers are licensed in Belize. In addition, the process of obtaining a license is both cost effective and can be accomplished quickly.

Advantages of a Belize Securities License

In recent years, increasingly complex regulation and an erosion of financial privacy rights in major financial centers such as the United States and United Kingdom have started to drive securities trading offshore. In fact, each day billions are traded in non-traditional, offshore securities exchanges which tend to offer favorable price discovery, comparable volume and lower trading fees. Established offshore financial markets such as Belize offer financial service providers with a unique opportunity to participate in the burgeoning offshore securities industry.
