The summit is to take place at the Ritz-Carlton on Grand Cayman and delegates are expected to include a wide range of investors, academics and economists. They will attend in order to discuss ways in which a healthy alternative investment industry can be further established.
Sir Richard Branson, the founder of The Virgin Group, is to act as keynote speaker at the event, which comes at a time when the popularity of alternative investments is growing due to the volatility of stocks and bonds markets.
AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson, said, “Those attending this important summit will be able to contribute to the future of the industry – sharing ideas on how more can be done to bring alternatives into the mainstream."
The Summit is being organized by Alternative Investment Research and is intended to bring together some of the best minds in the industry to examine how some of the challenges facing the industry can be dealt with.
Speaking to PR Newswire about the event, Sir Richard Branson said, "I am excited to be in the Cayman Islands for the Cayman Alternative Investment Summit.
"The event has a very impressive range of speakers from the alternative investment industry that will make for some very interesting discussions on the future of the industry."
AAA supports a wide range of alternative investment routes, including ethical options such as forestry investment through firms like Greenwood Management, which operates plantations in Brazil, and impact investing. “We believe that ethical investment and making a healthy return are not mutually exclusive,” said Mr Johnson.
