International Update

United States

International Business Development Director James Crawford continues to host virtual meetings with the private wealth industry in the US. The feedback received this month is that Miami is the hub for private wealth as there is a strong Latin American client base there. There has also been a rise in Private Investment Fund enquires coming from the Latin American market and single family offices are a growing area of practice with several US firms specialising in them. Philanthropic structures are also of interest to US clients and firms.  

WE ARE GUERNSEY hosted a virtual private equity-focused funds roadshow webinar from 9-10 September. This included a webinar, during which the key themes discussed were how to raise capital for distressed assets. ESG was also a focus. It is also important that firms find a “dancing partner” to connect with in the US and build on that relationship. Guernsey’s infrastructure and connectivity are important considerations and we need to be competitive to Cayman and Luxembourg.  

South Africa

We are seeing interest in getting information for a SA fund law firms about Guernsey as a jurisdiction to offer to Private Equity investment managers as an alternative to Mauritius as a fund domicile.
