Jersey’s independence, flexibility, tax neutrality and high regulatory standards all combine to form a uniquely advantageous jurisdiction. With its sophisticated and established fund and corporate structuring industry, Jersey offers investors and managers a vast array of possibilities—from regulated options through to the more sophisticated and institutional end of the market.
Over the last 50 years, Jersey’s government has worked diligently to make the island as business-friendly as possible. The country’s unique regulatory and tax landscape attracts investors from far and wide and its tax certainty allows for fiscally-efficient cross-border investments. What’s more, investors and managers in Jersey benefit from quicker regulatory outcomes than competitor markets, where authorizations can take as little as days or weeks, instead of months.
Jersey, while not a member of the European Union, presents investors and managers with unrivaled third country access to the EU through its private placement regime. The private placement rules of 2013 allow for investment fund managers in both Jersey and Guernsey to continue marketing into Europe, despite the introduction of the AIFMD.
Investors and managers doing business in Jersey are able to avoid the requirements and regulations that come with doing business in the EU. As such, Jersey’s internationally recognized and robust regulatory framework coupled with its favorable geographic location make it an extremely attractive jurisdiction for international business.
When we opened the Alter Domus Jersey office in 2008, we understood that our clients would need us there to help take advantage of the potential opportunities Jersey presents. In order to ensure we continue maximizing opportunities for our clients, we work closely with the Alter Domus UK and Alter Domus Guernsey offices. This is the beauty of being part of an international network, where knowledge and expertise can be consistently leveraged to meet our clients’ needs.
Our local team has a wealth of combined experience in alternative asset administration for private equity, real estate, infrastructure and debt. Today, we now have over 90 employees solely dedicated to serving our clients in Jersey and we’re proud to administer over 530 structures with assets in excess of $30bn.
