New Governor Brings Confidence to Financial Management Industry

Although he will hold the post on an interim basis, it is anticipated that Mr Roper will bring the kind of authority, stability and innovation to the role that is likely to see him significantly outlast the initial 6-9 months trial period – news sources report that he would like to have the job for the long-term.

“I am delighted to be appointed to the role by Her Majesty The Queen. It is a great privilege and honour. I take great pride in being part of the Cayman Islands and having an opportunity to serve its people,” Mr Roper told press.

“I will work in a spirit of collaboration and partnership with the Premier, elected politicians and all sectors of society.”

It will be interesting to see how Mr. Roper adjusts from working in Beijing – one of the world’s most densely populated and polluted cities – to being situated in the Cayman Islands, a relatively small and thinly populated island paradise. However, there will be some similarities. For example, in Beijing Mr. Roper regularly worked with cross-border investment professionals; this is likely to continue in the Cayman Islands, as the British Overseas Territory’s prosperity largely depends on the health of the financial management industry.
