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

CAIS24 is uniquely positioned to offer an intimate gathering for learning, networking and relationship building.  It’s an event where a small group comes together to explore big ideas.  Where the island lifestyle enhances the conference experience.  And where quality over quantity of speakers and delegates makes it a “must attend” summit.

Hosted with generous support from Dart Family Office and other sponsors, CAIS is a not-for-profit event dedicated to supporting the financial services industry in the Cayman Islands and internationally, and to help raise the awareness of Cayman’s value proposition as a jurisdiction of choice for success and innovation in the family office, financial services, tech, entertainment, health care and other emerging sectors.
