The RF Economic Outlook was launched in 2003 as the Cayman Business Outlook. The event, which began as a half-day lunch, grew in popularity and eventually morphed into an all-day event attracting over 400 participants each year. In 2014, the conference rebranded as the Cayman Economic Outlook (CEO) and the following year, RF introduced the event to the Bahamian market and to Barbados in 2021.
This now regional event serves as the platform for predicting significant business trends for the year ahead. Global and local experts are engaged to provide a forecast of the key social, economic and political & environmental issues that impact the respective economies. Each year, a new theme is strategically chosen in line with the prevailing global forces of the day and how those forces impact the Caribbean region. Along with amazing insights and tons of networking opportunities, RF also provides Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits.
