If there’s one thing alternative investment professionals can agree on, it’s that technology is reshaping the industry. Just as robo-advisors and electronic trading have changed how people think about traditional investment management, technology is now poised to significantly disrupt the world of alternative investment management.
For the delegates of the 2018 Cayman Alternative Investment Summit, the theme of “Wired: The rise of alternative investments in a digital age” will offer the opportunity to hear from thought leaders across the technology industry, including those on the forefront of the latest advancements in blockchain, virtual reality and regenerative medicine.
Joining Will Smith as a special guest speaker at the summit, which takes place Feb. 8 and Feb. 9 at Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa,
is race car driver Danica Patrick.
However, it is not just the industry experts that delegates can look forward to hearing; actor, producer and philanthropist Will Smith has been announced as keynote speaker. With futuristic movies such as “I, Robot” under his belt, Smith will be able to share a unique insight into the event theme, as well as providing entertaining anecdotes on his life and storied career.

Chris Duggan, Dart Enterprises’ VP of Community Development, said the summit would challenge attendees to think differently.
“It is important to us that we complement our impressive line-up of industry speakers with these special guests who will encourage attendees to look at their world from a different perspective, whether through the eyes of a Hollywood A-lister, NASCAR racer or virtual reality expert.”
