THE CAYMAN ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENT SUMMIT (CAIS) Now in its sixth year, CAIS brings together leading thinkers and decision makers from different segments of the global alternatives industry. The Summit has quickly grown to become one of the most influential discussion forums within the alternative investment space.

The only alternative investing event investors need to put on the calendar for their year.

Since its inception in 2012, the main focus of CAIS has been to convert challenges into opportunities and create businesses of enduring value. Our panels of experts discuss and debate current issues the industry faces and design responses that will take it to its next level of success.

Hosted by Dart, CAIS is a not-for-profit event which uses its experts and expertise to benefit philanthropic efforts both in Cayman and internationally.


Why Cayman?

A world away, but closer than you think.




There are eight different airlines flying direct to Grand Cayman from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

Nestled in the turquoise waters of the western Caribbean, the Cayman Islands boast award winning beaches, culinary expertise, along with a wonderful blend of colourful and traditional Caribbean-style living.

With over 60,000 residents, Grand Cayman is the thriving business community of the islands and the world’s fifth largest financial centre.

Being the jurisdiction of choice for many hedge fund managers, the Cayman Islands provide a perfect location to host the Cayman Alternative Investment Summit. Cayman offers a safe, modern and cosmopolitan environment for our expert speaker guests and attendees.
