    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The Cayman Islands are a British Overseas Territory in the western Caribbean Sea. The territory comprises the three islands of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, located south of Cuba and northwest of Jamaica. The Cayman Islands are considered to be part of the geographic Western Caribbean Zone as well as the Greater Antilles. The territory is a major world offshore financial center.

    Their money is not taxable so if this can be verified they moved it there to hide it from the courts.

    The WTB&TS of PA is simply a large multi-national organization that needs places to invest its liquid assets. K2 Advisors is required to disclose any party with "control" over the fund. The SEC views 10%+ ownership of the fund's assets as "control", or if the fund agreement specifically allows certain shareholders to hire/fire the investment manager (hence "control").

    Based on this Form D filing, the fund had an assigned value of $500,000,000. As of the Form D filing, WTB&TS was the sole investor, having purchased $40,000,000. WTB&TS, due to its size, meets the definition of an "Accredited Investor". The Appendix discloses that the WT was the sole accredited investor at the time, and there were no non-accredited investors that had invested in the fund-- therefore the sole investor.

    These funds certainly offer favorable tax treatment, but nothing illegal. Any gains on this investment would still be reported on the WT's U.S. tax filings.

    Thanks for posting this. Breaking open the kid's piggy bank to contribute would probably not sit well with many ignorant R&F Witnesses if they knew that the WTS has so many millions to invest while they're being told how broke they are!
