WE ARE RECREATED

The Little Chapel, one of Guernsey’s best-loved landmarks, has been lovingly reconstructed three times during its history.

Similarly our finance sector is underpinned by a culture of renewal and innovation continuously introducing products such as the Guernsey Green Fund.

A premier open-ended funds domicile

Guernsey’s open-ended funds sector includes nearly £104 billion of hedge funds, funds of hedge funds and other alternative investment asset classes as well as more traditional equity, fixed income and money market products.

Global fund promoters

Guernsey has a truly global client base and promoters such as Ashmore, Credit Suisse, FF&P, Foord Asset Management, Investec, Man Group, Marlborough, M&G, Rand Merchant Bank, Schroders, and Unigestion utilise Guernsey as the domicile for their investment platforms.

What’s available in Guernsey?

The Class B rules are intended to be as flexible as possible while consistent with meaningful investor protection. The Class B rules are essentially a codification of best practice with exemptions from the rules permitted by the regulator, the Guernsey Financial Services Commission (GFSC).

The Class B scheme remains the most popular open-ended fund type in Guernsey. They can be considered for public marketing in many countries around the world and moreover, the GFSC has also indicated its willingness to assist promoters who wish to market funds overseas by engaging with the relevant authorities.
