Welcome from the Premier of the Cayman Islands I extend my warmest greetings from across the miles and my sincere regret that I am not personally able to join all of you at the inaugural Cayman Alternative Investment Summit (CAIS) Brazil. I am confident our Cayman Islands Government representatives in attendance will convey our genuine honour to be part of this event and to discuss how our two great countries can work together to achieve mutual goals of fiscal responsibility and prosperity. Our countries may be 3,000 miles part, but we are closely aligned in terms of our common interests: a love of good food, good music and a commitment to future economic prosperity based on transparent communications, sound regulatory frameworks and world class service providers. There are presently over 200 Brazilian nationals and 150+ Brazilian companies based in the Cayman Islands. We warmly welcome these individuals and organizations and hope they will join us in conveying to you the benefits of living and working here. CAIS provides you with a unique opportunity to learn first-hand from our private sector partners about the benefits of doing business in the Cayman Islands. We remain at the forefront of regulatory changes across the globe and we intimately understand the impact of those changes on organizations which choose to do business here. Our Government is fully committed to continue to adapt to global changes and to elevate and maintain our status as a pre-eminent international financial centre. If I may impart one simple message – We are open for business and we very much welcome Brazilian companies to our shores. As you will learn during CAIS Brazil, we also host an expanded version of this conference in the Cayman Islands in February. I hope you will have the opportunity to attend that conference as well, so you may view our world class infrastructure, learn more about our pro-business environment, and that I may have the opportunity to meet with each of you at that event. Once again, welcome to CAIS Brazil 2019.


Hon Alden M McLaughlin MBE JP MLA The Premier of the Cayman Islands

Welcome from the President of Dart Real Estate and Representative of Dart Family Office On behalf of Dart Real Estate, the Platinum Sponsor of CAIS Brazil, and as a representative of the Dart Family Office, I extend our genuine appreciation to each of you for joining us at today’s conference. We have carefully curated an agenda that we hope will provide you with information about the ease of doing business from the Cayman Islands, and inspire you to give serious consideration to our jurisdiction as a place to establish an economic presence for your organization, and equally a physical presence for residency or a vacation home.

Jackie Doak President Business Development

Our Dart Family Office was established in the Cayman Islands over 25 years ago because we saw the significant potential in the future of the Cayman Islands and the merits that this British Overseas Territory has long possessed; a pro-business culture, close proximity to the United States and of course our globally acclaimed beaches and crystal-clear turquoise sea. In the decades since our organization first established a presence here, we have invested over USD $1.5 billion in the Cayman Islands, largely in infrastructure, luxury resorts and residential properties, and Class A commercial office space. As we look ahead to the future, we have made a firm commitment to continue our considerable financial investments in the jurisdiction to ensure it remains a premier place in the world to live and work. It is fair to say there are few other places on the globe that offer the level of professional service, quality infrastructure, stable and effective governance, sound economic and regulatory environments and personal safety as can be found in our tax-neutral country. It is for these reasons that the Cayman Islands was ranked as the “Easiest place to do business” in the world by The Global Complexity Index in 2019. We are grateful to have the opportunity to partner with the Cayman Islands Government in attracting new investment to the Cayman Islands, and we are equally so appreciative of the support and partnership from our co-sponsors of this event – Alexandria Bancorp, CIBC First Caribbean, KPMG, Ogier and Maitland. Our collective team looks forward to being at your service at this event to answer your questions, and convey our famous CaymanKind hospitality. Finally, we sincerely appreciate the warm welcome we have received from the colleagues we have already met in Brazil and we look forward to sharing information with our friends and partners about what a fabulous place this is to visit. Welcome and enjoy CAIS Brazil!


Simplicity. Safety. Sophistication.

That is the essence of what attracts people to live and work in the Cayman Islands. Ranked as the easiest place to do business by The Global Complexity Index in 2019 this tax-neutral British Overseas Territory has earned accolades for being a straight forward place to work, where establishing a physical presence is a simple process thanks to world-class service providers, a stable and efficient government and a highly regulated financial services industry. The Cayman Islands has also been recognised as the friendliest country in the world1, a reflection of its welcoming population long accustomed to the presence of international corporations on Grand Cayman. A low crime rate, a well-established judiciary and a high standard of living contribute to the safe living and business environment. This sunny Caribbean nation is also renowned for its infrastructure, luxury resorts and residential properties, world-class culinary scene and international community, all which contribute to a sophisticated place in which to live and work. From a new airport and extensive airlift, to modern roads, three hospitals, quality power, water and internet providers, and more, it’s small wonder that visitors and new residents alike often express their surprise and delight by the livability of Grand Cayman given its Caribbean address. Dart Real Estate has made significant contributions to that sophisticated lifestyle, investing over US $1.5 billion in luxury resorts and 4 residential properties, Class A commercial office buildings,

public infrastructure projects in partnership with government and most notably its flagship development, Camana Bay. Camana Bay is a 685-acre waterfront town centre founded on the principles of New Urbanism and home to global legal and accountancy firms, as well as an array of retail boutiques, food and beverage establishments, an international school with an IB programme, and OLEA, a residential community now under construction and offering condos, townhomes and villas for sale. Planning is underway to introduce a new commercial office building at the town centre, one which will accommodate the growing interest from prospective tenants in the family office, reinsurance and financial services sectors, including those organisations needing space to meet economic substance requirements. Dart also announced in early 2019 that it was exploring the possibility of building a tall tower at Camana Bay, a property which if approved will establish a new standard for luxury real estate on Grand Cayman and enhance the status of the Cayman Islands globally. A short drive from Camana Bay is another Dart development, Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa, and The Residences at Seafire. The AAA Five Diamond award winning resort shares a 12 acre property on Seven Mile Beach with The Residences at Seafire, the newest luxury condominium development ready for immediate occupancy on Grand Cayman. The 62-unit

property offers contemporary one-to-five bedroom residences that are ideally suited for residents, part-time residents and those applying for permanent residency. An optional rental program managed by the Kimpton is available to purchasers interested in renting their property when not on island. Properties for sale at The Residences at Seafire and OLEA, as well as other luxury real estate, are represented by Provenance Properties, Dart Real Estate’s brokerage and the official Christie’s International Real Estate affiliate in the Cayman Islands. Clients benefit from three distinct offerings: one-stop service for all commercial, residential and relocation service needs, in-depth and proprietary market analyses, and access to the privileged Christie’s Real Estate marketing programmes and network of like-minded individuals. Beyond the role of real estate developer, Dart is committed to the Cayman Islands. Through its thoughtful and innovative local investments and strategic partnerships with both the Cayman Islands Government and the private sector, Dart shares a vision of growth and sustainable development for the Cayman Islands which advances its position as a premier financial services jurisdiction. The Dart Real Estate team helps business owners and individuals learn about the benefits of living and working in the Cayman Islands, and assists with making the relocation process an efficient and positive experience. 1
