About Private Funds: Where and How?

The choice of domicile or jurisdiction for a private fund is a critical factor in the structuring process. It is a choice made more complicated by the bewildering array of jurisdictions all competing for market share in the offshore fund business. The laws, legal structure and local infrastructure of each jurisdiction need to be considered when choosing a jurisdiction with the perception of particular jurisdictions among target investors impacting on the decision.

When looking at European jurisdictions, consideration must also be given to the implications of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive ('AIFM Directive').

Private Funds: Where and How? examines and analyses the key factors that need to be addressed in 16 of the leading private fund domiciles:

Bermuda
BVI
Cayman Islands
Dubai
France
Germany
Guernsey
Hong Kong
Ireland
Italy
Jersey
Luxembourg
Malta
Singapore
United Kingdom
United States of America (Delaware)
