Cayman Islands: UBS And Walkers Sponsor The Third Ladies In Trusts Event
Last Updated: 13 November 2015

On Thursday 23 October, Cayman's top female trusts professionals joined together for an evening of drinks, canapés and industry insight when UBS and Walkers hosted the third official Ladies in Trust networking event.

Ladies in Trusts began as a result of Shelley White's belief there was an opportunity for women in the Cayman Island's trust sector to join forces to stage influential specialist networking events.

Shortly afterwards twelve practitioners met for afternoon tea at the Ritz and decided to establish the Ladies in Trusts group. In the eleven months since, Ladies in Trusts has grown by invitation only to over sixty members. The group is now becoming established as an important local networking society alongside other similar organisations like 100 Women in Hedge Funds and the International Women's Insolvency and Restructuring Confederation.

Nicole Coe, Marketing Manager at Rawlinson & Hunter explained, "we have a large trust and corporate group, the majority of whom are female, therefore we agreed that ladies in trusts provides an excellent opportunity for our ladies to network with others involved in such an important sector of the Cayman Islands financial industry."

Ms White, a partner at Walkers, said, "we are delighted with the wide-ranging support that Ladies in Trusts has received from Cayman's financial sector. We are also grateful to our sponsors who host these high quality events and I would like to thank them for their support. We hope our group will continue to grow as it has in its first year."

"It's a fantastic event," reflected Valerie Mullen, Director of Wealth Management at UBS, "it's great to have a no pressure environment where ladies can be ladies and make some connections in the industry".

The next Ladies in Trusts will be a Christmas Lunch in December.
