CIFSA call to action

The Cayman Islands Financial Services Association will hold a luncheon on Monday where speakers will address how the country can respond to the global financial crisis.

The event will be held at the Ritz Carlton at midday on Monday.

The guest speaker at the luncheon will be Mark Yeandle, the person behind the Global Financial Centres Index, an important ranking mechanism that examines the strengths and weaknesses of financial centres around the globe based on 57 instrumental factors.

Mr. Yeandle describes the presentation as ‘something which might spark discussions with government and private sector, as we look at which factors are most highly correlated in determining a financial centre’s competitiveness and how the Cayman Islands ranks in these critical areas’.

The public relations unit of the Portfolio of Finance is a major sponsor of the luncheon, and other sponsors include dms Management and Cayman Free Press.

CIFSA Director Andrew Johnson said: ‘In order to protect our place in the world economy, it is important that we take the time to understand where Cayman is gaining and losing ground as a financial centre and the steps we can take to respond and improve our current standing.’
