THE CAYMAN ISLANDS
Located in the Western Caribbean, just 450 miles southwest of Miami, the Cayman Islands is famous for its white-sand beaches, world-acclaimed dive sites and thriving culinary scene. With direct flights from 16 cities in the U.S. and Canada, Grand Cayman is easy to reach and offers a welcome dose of midwinter sunshine.
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.
With special conference rates available for three days before and after CAIS19, why not stay on to snorkel a shipwreck, swim with a stingray and sample island favourites such as conch ceviche or fish rundown?
