Arnold Schwarzenegger will keynote the upcoming Cayman Alternative Investment Summit (CAIS), scheduled for 15-17 February 2017 at the new Kimpton Seafire Resort and Spa in the Cayman Islands.
The annual not-for-profit event provides a forum for 400-plus executives to discuss opportunities and challenges facing the alternative investment community.
Schwarzenegger is an Austrian-American actor, businessman and the former governor of California. After leaving office in 2011, Schwarzenegger has remained an outspoken advocate of sustainable energy and was a leading voice at the Paris COP21 climate conference in 2015.
He has also returned to the acting world with recent films such as Expendables 3 (2014) and Terminator Genisys (2015).
Schwarzenegger will become the new host of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice in January 2017, replacing president-elect Donald Trump.
Schwarzenegger will be joined by Mark and Scott Kelly, twin astronauts helping NASA study the impact of long-duration space flight; George Whitesides, CEO of Virgin Galactic, the world’s first commercial spaceline; Mike Abrashoff, former Navy general famed for transforming the worst-performing ship in the Navy’s Pacific Fleet into the best-performing ship; and David McWilliams, Irish economist, writer, broadcaster and journalist.
“We are excited to have such a diverse line-up of speakers at our upcoming event,” says Chris Duggan, director of CAIS and vice president of community development for event sponsor, Dart. “We believe it’s important to hear viewpoints from outside the alternative investment industry, and this collection of influential voices provides attendees with an opportunity to learn about everything from the commercial space race to military tactics to entrepreneurship.”
CAIS 2017 speakers and attendees will also have the opportunity to attend the 2017 Legends Tennis Tournament in Camana Bay on 17 February, the last night of the conference. The upcoming tournament will feature famous pros John McEnroe, Jim Courier, Monica Seles and Daniela Hantuchova.
