Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Apr 11, 2018 - Family offices, key industry players, UHNWI, and professional athletes will be converging on April 11-15, 2018 at the upscale The Kimpton Seafire Resort and Spa in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands for this intimate gathering.
LDJ Capital Chairman David Drake is one of the speakers. More recently, David Drake is also seen as a leader in blockchain and cryptocurrency. He saw the value of digital assets when everyone was avoiding it. It all started in 2011 when Drake collaborated on the JOBS Act to create new laws underlying all fundraising in the U.S. for all ICOs. He runs a $200M LDJ Cayman Fund focused on cryptocurrency, mining, and ICO acquisitions. LDJ Capital Credit also offers middle market bridge financing to seed upcoming ICO’s. Previously, he held a majority stake as a Managing Partner with Robert Hambrecht in an Alternative Energy Fund NewCommons Capital 2009-2010.
Drake says, “Cryptocurrencies have yet to be declared to be the future of finance but we cannot deny that it is disrupting the finance industry in a rapid and unpredictable pace. This Cayman event will be a combination of informative discussions and enjoyable activities for the delegates in a relaxed luxurious setting.”
The five-day event will be a mix of educational sessions combined with lifestyle events. It will start off with a private welcome reception and dinner. The event will feature panel discussions, sunset cocktails, alfresco dining at the Wharf with live music, Catamaran sailing, and all white dinner party. There will be several networking breaks allowing the delegates to connect with industry experts while enjoying activities such as watersports, spa time and fitness activities.
The topics up for discussion include impact investing, the future of the family, the digital family office, trusts and tax reform, disruptive innovation: fintech and the future of finance, and investment opportunities.
