Dart sponsors CIFSA event

Published on Sunday, August 9, 2009 Email To Friend    Print Version

Andrew Johnson, Director, CIFSA accepts a cheque for sponsorship from Lynn Smith-Moore, Communications Manager, Dart Cayman Islands.

Dart Cayman Islands said it was delighted to be part of the Cayman Islands Financial Services Association’s (CIFSA) recent dinner event at the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman.

Tina McLaughlin, Chief Financial Officer of Dart Management Ltd, attended the dinner and explained Dart’s interest.

“It is clear that the continued growth and enhancement of the financial industry in the Cayman Islands is critical to the well being and future of the country, and Dart is supportive of the efforts of CIFSA to further this cause,” she said.

CIFSA has engaged the firm of Quinn Gillespie & Associates to lobby in Washington DC on behalf of the Cayman Islands financial services industry.

Jack Quinn and Manuel Oritz of Quinn Gillespie & Associates spoke at the CIFSA dinner at the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman last month. Dart Cayman Islands was a key sponsor of the event.

Andrew Johnson, a Director of CIFSA, was pleased to have Dart participate as sponsor.

“I had the pleasure of sitting with Ms McLaughlin during this dinner and learned more about Dart’s commitment and views on the CIFSA,” he said.

“It is of critical importance that the business community is supportive of the CIFSA’s objectives, and we are absolutely delighted that Dart is involved.”

At the event last month, speakers Jack Quinn and Manuel Oritz explained their efforts to engage in what they called “retail education”, which means that they are focusing on educating individuals who are in a position to influence legislation.

In addition to addressing the role the Cayman Islands plays in the world financial markets, these lobbyists plan to make efforts to keep Cayman off any black list and will be supporting the efforts of the alternative US legislative movement, which is aimed at improving compliance with existing laws rather than changing the laws.

Dart Cayman Islands is made up of a diverse group of businesses. Camana Bay, one of Dart’s newest developments, is situated on 500 acres that stretch from the Caribbean Sea to the North Sound, and is a place to live, work and play.

A mixed-use master-planned community, the Town of Camana Bay is being developed over several decades, enabling it to flourish for generations to come. Designed by a team of award-winning architects and planners, Camana Bay has a contemporary style inspired by traditional Caribbean architecture and is landscaped with mature, native plants and trees to give it a distinctly Caymanian character. With shops, restaurants, offices, homes and a school all within easy walking distance, the Town of Camana Bay is Grand Cayman’s newest community.
