Guernsey is one of the premier, and oldest, offshore domiciles used for Private Equity and Real Estate funds. Founded on a strong legal basis, it has had Limited Partnership laws since 1995 (revised in 2015) and a Limited Liability Partnership law was brought in in 2014. Its Companies (Guernsey) Law 2008, as amended, has ensured a modern and streamlined company law regime, with the latest changes and improvements implemented in 2014. In addition, there are a large number of institutional investment schemes established in Guernsey which have become increasingly popular for use as Special Purpose Vehicles in asset securitisation, real property and other specialised schemes.
Guernsey’s low tax status, proximity to the financial markets of Europe and a sophisticated banking and professional infrastructure have also contributed to the success of the Island as a base for investment funds.
Under the AIFMD Guernsey has created a dual regime allowing promoters the opportunity to choose either an AIFMD compliant structure or one that is out of scope. Guernsey is a member of the OECD and has also obtained designated territory status under the UK Financial Services and Markets Act, 2000 (the “FSMA”).
