F.S. 663.407
663.407 Capital requirements.
(1) For an international trust entity to qualify for a license under this part, the proposed capitalization of the international trust entity must be in such amount as the office determines is necessary, taking into consideration the risk profile of the international trust entity and the ability of the international trust entity to operate a licensed office in a safe and sound manner. In making this determination, the office shall consider the financial resources of the international trust entity, including:
(a) The international trust entity’s current and projected capital position, profitability, level of indebtedness, business and strategic plans, and off-balance sheet asset management and administration activities;
(b) The financial condition of any of the international trust entity’s existing offices located in the United States;
(c) The minimum capital requirements of the international trust entity’s home-country jurisdiction; and
(d) The capital ratio standards used in the United States and in the international trust entity’s home-country jurisdiction.
(2) The proposed capitalization of the international trust entity must be in such amount as the office deems adequate, but in no case may the total capital accounts of the international trust entity be less than $1 million.
(3) The office may specify such other conditions as it determines are appropriate, considering the public interest and the need to maintain a safe, sound, and competitive financial marketplace in this state.
(4) For purposes of this part, the capital accounts of and capital ratio standards for an international trust entity must be determined in accordance with rules adopted by the commission. In adopting such rules, the commission shall consider similar rules adopted by regulatory agencies in the United States and the need to provide reasonably consistent regulatory requirements for international trust entities doing business in this state, as well as capital adequacy standards of an international trust entity’s home-country jurisdiction.
