Conyers co-sponsors ABA seminar The Pros and Cons of Offshore Centres

November 2013

Conyers Dill & Pearman is proud to co-sponsor the American Bar Association Section of International Law’s upcoming seminar The Pros and Cons of Offshore Centres. Held on 16 and 17 of January 2014 at the Westin Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands, the seminar explores the legitimate uses of today’s offshore financial centres, including the ease and speed of establishment of sophisticated institutional financial structures, tax incentives, comparative costs, infrastructure, asset protection, confidentiality and the effect of international regulation.

The conference affords participants time for debate and dialogue with leading experts as well as ample networking opportunities with colleagues. Attendees will include members of the financial services industry including asset allocators, investment managers, international banks, family offices, accountants, lawyers and administrators, particularly from the United States, Latin America and Europe.

Conyers will open day two of the conference, with Nigel Meeson moderating the session entitled “The Aftermath of the Financial Crisis: Lessons Learnt by Cayman Hedge Funds”.

Other topics include:

  • Why Offshore Centres Exist
  • Effects of Dodd-Frank on the Use of Offshore Structures
  • What Cayman Offers the Financial Services Industry
  • The Future of Offshore Centres
