Second Annual Cayman Investment Forum

It gives me great pleasure as President of the CFA Society Cayman Islands to welcome you this year to our second Investment Forum. This year’s event builds on the outstanding success of 2013 which comprised of over 140 attendees and some extraordinarily high calibre presenters. This year’s event is again sponsored by Vanguard, Scotiabank and Silver Wheaton. We owe our sponsors a large debt of gratitude for not only their monetary support but also their organisational and administrative support. Without them we would not be able to bring to Cayman the truly world-class speakers that we do today. Today’s forum comes at an incredibly delicate juncture in the global economy. We have had a number of years of economic growth in the United States and United Kingdom and policy developments that were almost unimaginable a few years ago in both Japan and the EU. Equity markets have soared as a result and bond yields have remained at record lows for record lengths of time. Can the good times last? What might go wrong? What are the best investment options remaining? These are but some of the questions investors are asking themselves. This forum may not deliver all the answers but we sincerely hope that it will stimulate you, give you ideas and perhaps even challenge your assumptions. Please help us to make this a true discussion by asking questions and joining us for further discussions during cocktails at the conclusion of the forum

Simon Cawdery, CFA, Past President
