GRAND CAYMAN, located 480 miles south of Miami, Florida, is one of the largest financial centers in the world with over $1.8 trillion on deposit in more than 250 banks. A British Overseas Territory, the Cayman Islands are comprised of three islands: Grand Cayman, the country’s capital and commercial center with approximately 56,000 residents, and the more sparsely populated “Sister Islands” of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, located 80 miles to the northeast.
The other “economic engine” of the islands is tourism which in 2013 attracted approximately 1.7 million visitors to Cayman’s beautiful beaches, botanical gardens and wildlife, which include the blue iguana, an endangered species of lizard endemic to Grand Cayman. Consolidated Water ’s corporate offices are located on the famous Seven Mile Beach, where the Company’s subsidiary, Cayman Water, has been providing drinking water since 1973 and operates one of the two water utilities on Grand Cayman Island. Consolidated Water ’s other Cayman subsidiary, Ocean Conversion Cayman, provides drinking water to the other utility on Grand Cayman, the Water Authority-Cayman.
