George Town ,


CAIS is an annual conference that convenes leading thinkers and decision makers from diverse segments of the global alternatives industry to discuss and debate the challenges and opportunities that will define the future of the industry.

Hosted by Dart, CAIS is a not-for-profit event dedicated to supporting financial services both in the Cayman Islands and internationally.

As a British Overseas Territory, the Cayman Islands offers an appealing combination of political stability, tax neutrality, access to best-in-class professional services and a legal system based on English Common Law. Cayman's success as a global financial centre and its thriving tourism industry have led to economic prosperity, providing the highest standard of living in the Caribbean and a cosmopolitan way of life that continue to draw investment and talent to the island. Its close proximity to the U.S. and physical beauty merely add to the attraction of doing business in the Cayman Islands.

The Cayman Islands offers the perfect setting for hosting an alternative investments conference in a safe, modern and cosmopolitan environment. As the world's fifth largest financial centre and home to over 11,000 regulated funds, Cayman is the jurisdiction of choice for many hedge fund managers.
