Also on Twitter, Mark Mobius goes over the rising boom in commodities and how that will benefit the emerging market investor. But he warns not all areas of every emerging market will benefit equally and top returns will go to smart, hard-working, active investors.

This Week on Twitter
This week on Twitter Sam Jones at the FT gives us a good overview of domiciling your private fund in Cayman Islands. While this is a very popular option and is often the path of least resistance, there are downsides. There just are not enough directors in the Caymans to adequately service such a popular industry. Directors can end up on so many funds that no one is effectively looking out for investor interests. Mr. Jones goes over a nice history of how we got here, what the future may hold, and at the end briefly summarizes some alternative to the Caymans.
