Cayman Funds 2016

How would you characterise the health of the hedge funds sector in the Cayman Islands at the moment? Jeffrey Short: First, I would like to welcome the Honourable Wayne Panton, Minister of Financial Services, Commerce and Environment and thank you all for being here today. I am looking forward to having a healthy discussion. Minister Panton, I would like to turn it over to you for your opening comments. Wayne Panton: Thank you for inviting me. My own background is in the financial services industry and I know that many of these issues are important for us to discuss. Government recognises that this industry is vital to Cayman. We are committed to supporting it, and the fact that we have created the first ministry dedicated to the financial services industry demonstrates this commitment.
