Partnering with the best people and getting a good chief investment officer were offered as being some of the main tips when handling illiquid assets by a panel of speakers at the Cayman Alternative Investment Summit (CAIS), which is taking place in the Cayman Islands this week.

The panel of experts included Philip Watson, global head of investment lab and managing director of Citi; Gerald Alain P. Chen-Young, former VP and CIO at UNCF; Carol Womack, principal and private equity at Diversified Trust; and Bruce Zimmerman, trustee of CommonFund. It was chaired by Prof. Amin Rajan, CEO of CREATE-Research.
