US Funds Virtual Roadshow 2020
13 October 2020 - 15 October 2020 - Online
Interview session with Merck Mercuriadis and Halit Coussin
Live Panel Discussion with US Listed Funds Delegation
The man behind one of the biggest success stories of the alternatives funds sector in recent years will be speaking at our webinar on Tuesday 13 October.
Merck Mercuriadis was once manager to the likes of Elton John. He founded Hipgnosis Songs Fund, a Guernsey-registered fund listed on the London Stock Exchange, and has raised millions from investors keen to back songs and associated musical intellectual property rights. Among its portfolio are songs by artists including Beyonce, Rhianna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars.
“I have always believed that hit songs and music, art in general, has real value to it. These songs are as valuable as gold, or oil,” he has said.
Find out more about Merck and Hipgnosis, and why Guernsey was chosen to structure the fund, at our webinar.
Also speaking will be Halit Coussin, Partner at Pershing Square Capital Management in New York, and a Guernsey delegation covering all aspects of fund formation and administration.

The growing flows of investment between Guernsey and the United States means it is a great time for Guernsey fund practitioners to connect with US managers and advisers to explain Guernsey’s strengths for the US market.
Our delegation will expand on how Guernsey has become an increasingly popular choice for US managers wanting to target European investors, and on island’s status as the leading jurisdiction for London-listed structures outside of the UK.
