Aggregated assets reported by the offshore banking sector totaled about US$3.0 billion, equivalent in size to about four times the GDP, as on December 2002. The largest bank represents 61 percent of the sector’s aggregated assets, highlighting an important degree of concentration. Investment portfolios represent the bulk of banks’ assets and are predominantly composed of government and corporate bonds and equities.
