About the Guernsey Green Fund
In July 2018, the Guernsey Financial Services Commission (GFSC) published the Guernsey Green Fund Rules - creating the world’s first regulated green investment fund product.
By providing a trusted and transparent product that contributes to the internationally-agreed objectives of COP21, the United National Climate Change Conference, the Guernsey Green Fund will increase investors' access to green investments.
Guernsey has introduced the world’s first regulated green investment fund product.
A Guernsey Green Fund (GGF) must be established with the objectives of:
Seeking a return for investors
Mitigating environmental damage
By investing in a Guernsey Green Fund, Investors can be assured that that their investments have a positive environmental impact on the planet which are being monitored against internationally-recognised criteria.
How it works
Establish a Guernsey fund, choosing from any of the island’s existing regimes.
Demonstrate compliance with the Guernsey Green Fund Rules.
Provide assurance that the fund is run in accordance with green criteria.
The green criteria of the fund can be verified under one of two routes:
A certificate from a suitable independent third party that the prospectus meets the notified green criteria.
A declaration from either a Guernsey-licensed fund manager or administrator.
