The Financial Services Authority in the UK has been useless in this matter and has shown no interest in taking any action against current scams being operated by the same people who ran Imperial, including those under the names of Property International and Alpha Toronto.

It must also be remembered that the UK authorities never closed down Imperial Consolidated in the UK, even after its Grenada bank was taken over by local regulators. Rather, Imperial in the UK only closed down when it applied for voluntary administration.

It is a poor comparison, indeed, that, in this instance, regulators in one of the worst regulated offshore jurisdictions, i.e. Grenada, are more pro-active in combating crime than their counterparts in the UK.

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
