About the Bank

Established in 1997, Capital Security Bank (CSB) is the only private offshore bank operating exclusively within the Cook Islands.

The Bank offers cash accounts with access to 25 different currencies, trading accounts, allowing to trade on more than 40 exchanges around the world, precious metal accounts and managed investment accounts.
