Ive been reading with interest the various threads on Anjouan banking licenses. Putting aside the fact that they may or may not be a soverign state able to issue them. Didnt they agree to a moratorium on bank licenses and say that they would not issue any more licenses or effect anymore transfers after the 31st December 2003. From memory I think thats why there was a great big rush before new years to transfer ownership etc.

Correct me if im wrong.

Cheers From Australia

Hi Steven,
the original purpose of that thread was to find out just that.
Apperantly new licenses are not issued for the time being becuase there is a arbitrage case about who has the right to do so . The case is between the companyregistry of Anjouan and the new Offshore Finance Authority of Anjouan. The latter wants to raise the min reserve to 100.000 from 10.000 USD .
Some companies claim you can still apply now , others say wait for the case to be settled and others sell banks with the previous issued license.

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.
