A Measure of Certainty Jersey offers a quality platform amid market volatility

International developments are giving fund managers and practitioners a lot of food for thought: Brexit, the US election, market volatility and an evolving regulatory landscape, particularly as the European Commission continues to consider third party passporting under the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD).

With so much international activity it’s understandable that managers, promoters, legal advisers and service providers to hedge funds are focusing on what it means for their operating models and how it might impact their fund structuring options.

As the sixth largest centre for hedge fund management globally, Jersey takes a keen interest in these developments, and the latest figures show that alternative funds business conducted through Jersey is holding up well. At the end of June 2016, for instance, the value of funds under administration in Jersey stood at just over $300 billion (up 2% from June 2015), with the number of funds established in the jurisdiction remaining stable.

For Jersey at least, the overall picture is one of stability. There has been very little volatility in Jersey’s funds figures over the past few years, in hedge or other classes. At the top end, some larger fund managers are continuing to raise significant funds, but there is also a trend for a growing number of smaller, new managers to use Jersey as a domicile for their funds.
