Vanuatu Securities License

The Republic of Vanuatu is an island located in the South Pacific long known as an international offshore financial services center. The Island is a parliamentary democracy with a strong constitution. A former protectorate of Great Britain, the primary language of Vanuatu is English. While the Vanuatu dollar is the official recognized currency of the nation, the United States dollar is widely recognized and accepted. All major international currencies are supported in Vanuatu by a stable and robust banking system. In recent years, financial professionals have flocked to the island nation for the Vanuatu Securities License.

As an offshore financial services center, the Republic of Vanuatu is widely respected and recognized. The nation boasts a no tax regime on offshore profits and only a minimal stamp duty on domestic share transfers. As an asset protection haven, the island offers significant hurdles to affixing liability, including a restriction against the domestication of foreign judgments. For such reasons, sophisticated financial services organizations have flocked to the small, yet exceedingly stable, island nation.

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

Advantages of a Vanuatu 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 Vanuatu offer financial service providers with a unique opportunity to participate in the burgeoning offshore securities industry.
