“The Cayman Islands are beautiful. But the main thing is to have the opportunity to talk to people who come from a wide range of the financial community. We’ve had an incredible selection of people covering private equity and traditional investment. It’s just an opportunity to listen and learn as much as it is to talk and to promote what your own views are.”
