Attorney Joel Nagel is the chairman of Caye International Bank, a private bank in Belize that caters to international clients. Nagel has many years of experience in international law and asset management, and at Caye International Bank, he helps clients manage offshore accounts that are private and stable.

Through the firm, Nagel helps clients utilize tools such as insurance policies, foundations, trusts, residency visas, and second citizenships to achieve financial security for themselves and their progeny.

He has served on the boards of over 20 companies and advises dozens of financial institutions, including banks, mutual and hedge funds, and insurance companies.
