Local directors offered tips on attracting investors

| 21/02/2010

(CNS): In the fourth of a five-part seminar series for independent directors of Cayman Island investment funds a local financial organisation will be offering them an opportunity to hear from the horses’ mouths what fund investors want to see from them in order to invest. The Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) will be featuring Terry Raby of Universities Superannuation Scheme, Greg Robbins of Mesirow Advanced Strategies and Eric Maidenhead of UBS Global Asset Management.

These speakers each represent a multi-billion dollar fiduciary investor and will give their opinions on what the Cayman Islands can do to remain attractive to portfolio fund investors.

The three fiduciary investors will share their experiences of working with independent directors to Cayman funds – both good and bad. Yolanda McCoy and RJ Berry from the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority will also be on the panel to provide the Cayman regulator’s point of view. 

This presentation and working lunch will immediately follow the GAIM Ops Cayman conference at the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman on Wednesday 3 March 2010 at 12:30 pm and is open free of charge to all AIMA members and GAIM Cayman delegates.  

The first three seminars in the series covered issues that fund directors should consider when interacting with fund administrators, auditors and attorneys and looked at the pitfalls and challenges facing independent directors when appointed to a fund domiciled in the Cayman Islands.  

Those interested in registering for the seminar are invited to RSVP to Abbie McMillan at AMcMillan@bcsl.ky For more information about AIMA, including AIMA membership is available on www.aima.org.
