IMTC Forum in San Juan focus: International Financial Services & Fintech Sector in Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico has been, since the early nineties, attracting investments for its growing international financial services sector. Operating licenses to International Banking Entities (IBEs) where first given in 1989 and by 2011, 31 IBEs – with total assets of $44 billion where operating. In 2012, the Government of Puerto Rico instituted a number of development programs, like the IFE Act of 2012 that created the International Financial Entities (IFEs) replacing the IBE Act, in order to increase investment in the international financial sector. By early 2020, there were close to 100 EBIs and EFIs and the rapid rate of growth has created hundreds of jobs for legal advisers, consultants, banking and compliance professionals, accountants, auditors, etc.
The Financial Sector is evolving globally and this forum wants to discuss the future of Puerto Rico as a sound and solid International Financial Services Center. Join the discussion.
