Our History

Caledonian was formed in 1970 by the late Mr. William S. Walker OBE.

Mr. Walker was born in Guyana and educated at Cambridge University in England. He visited the Cayman Islands on several occasions before deciding to move permanently to Cayman in 1964. He formed the first law firm on the island and, a few years later, established Caledonian.

Mr. Walker was instrumental in contributing to the drafting of much of the early financial services legislation that became a pillar of the island’s growth and development.

Caledonian has grown lock-step with the Cayman Islands as it has grown as a financial centre and in 2010 Caledonian celebrated a milestone with its 40th Anniversary.

In 2011, the Caledonian was acquired by New World Holdings Inc. a privately held investment company in the Cayman Islands. Through the acquisition, Caledonian and all subsidiaries operate under the new company name Caledonian Global Financial Services and has formed one of the largest specialised financial services providers in our operational jurisdictions.

Caledonian Standing Strong, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.
