Dart Family Office

In 1993, Ken Dart chose the Cayman Islands as the base for his family office, establishing a small investment office with three employees. Over the past 25 years, the Dart Family Office has grown to become the headquarters of Dart’s global operations, and Ken Dart has invested more than US $1.5 billion in the jurisdiction he calls home.

The Cayman Islands has many qualities advantageous to family offices: a stable government, strong infrastructure, tax neutrality and a cosmopolitan lifestyle. An open policy on foreign property ownership, good transport links with North America and access to professional service providers facilitate doing business in the Cayman Islands, while trust-specific legislation built on English Common law supports wealth and succession planning structures. In this environment, many high-net-worth individuals like Ken Dart are choosing to domicile their family offices in Grand Cayman.
