Which of the Channel Islands’ routes to market work best for funds investors in the real world?
Recent developments in the UK have had a significant impact on the way in which Channel Island investment funds can be sold into the UK market.
Delegates at Collas Crill’s spring seminar will have a chance to find out which work – and which don’t – from the law firm’s experts in Jersey and Guernsey funds as well as Elizabeth Budd, head of London firm Speechly Bircham’s financial services group, at two events this week.
Collas Crill fund specialist Wayne Atkinson said: “This week’s seminars promise to provide Jersey and Guernsey audiences with a fascinating insight from an external viewpoint; Speechly Bircham’s Elizabeth Budd has vast experience in the structuring and marketing of offshore funds in the UK marketplace and will be able to share that with the audience.
“The seminars should be a great opportunity for those in the Guernsey and Jersey funds industries to get real feedback on which of the Channel Islands’ routes to market do and don’t work for investors in the real world. There will also be the chance to explore some of the structuring solutions being used to facilitate investment in an increasingly over-regulated market.”
At the events on Thursday (Jersey) and Friday (Guernsey) Elizabeth Budd will discuss the remaining exemptions for high net worth individuals and sophisticated investors, as well as discussing the concept of non-mainstream pooled investments under new FCA Rules. In Jersey Collas Crill’s Mark Rawlins, and in Guernsey Paul Wilkes and Wayne Atkinson, will lead discussions on innovation in the private family fund and unregulated funds space.
