Past Events: 2015

Third Annual Cayman Investment Forum

On behalf of the CFA Society Cayman Islands, I wish to extend a warm Caymanian welcome to all members and guests to our 2015 Cayman Investment Forum. This year we continue to build on the outstanding success of prior years through the delivery of world class speakers sharing their ideas and experiences to ignite discussions on relevant and timely topics. This year’s event is sponsored by Silver Wheaton, Vanguard, Scotiabank and PricewaterhouseCoopers to whom we owe an immense debt of gratitude for their continued support and assistance. Our partnership with these highly regarded corporate ambassadors has facilitated the very high calibre speakers we have today. Today’s forum comes at a unique and volatile juncture in the global economy. Investors’ confidence in markets has been shaken a few times in the past twelve months. Our focus has turned from geopolitical events in Russia and renewed debate on a Grexit from the European Union to the slowing economic growth in China and primed interest rate lift off in the United States. With these factors setting the stage for increased volatility, investors are taking note of a world awash in cheap debt and are becoming increasingly sensitive to the need to find alpha. Where can I find alpha? What else might go awry? How can I find value in this low return environment? These are but some of the questions investors are contemplating. Our esteemed speakers and panelists will attempt to address some of these questions while we explore a variety of topics, all of which I believe will provide food for thought. I encourage each one of you to actively participate in the question and answer sessions with our presenters and also invite you to join us for cocktails at the conclusion of the forum

Monique Frederick, CFA, President
