Cyprus

One of the smallest member countries of the European Union and also a member of Euro Area (also called as Euro zone), Cyprus is an international financial and banking hub. The country has been recovering fast from the recent financial crisis which affected most of the banks due to the dedication of the banks to regain their lost glory.

The country boasts of a highly developed banking system which has a tremendous amount of experience in dealing with International clients and High Net worth individuals and it aims to use this experience to regain the glory of the banking system. The efforts have yielded fruits and a number of international financial experts have shown renewed confidence in the Cypriot banking system (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-01-28/billionaires-from-loeb-to-vekselberg-heed-call-of-cyprus-banks).

The Banks in Cyprus are regulated by Central Bank of Cyprus (http://www.centralbank.gov.cy/ nqcontent.cfm?a_name=home). As a member of the Euro zone, a limited degree of control particularly in currency matters is also maintained by the European Central Bank. There are presently seven Local Banks and a large number of foreign Financial Institutions working in Cyprus, a detailed list of which is available from the Central Bank at http://www.centralbank.gov.cy /nqcontent.cfm ?a_id=8154.
