Chris Corcoran, Director – Fund Services, took part in a Q&A with Real Deals in their 2020 Guernsey special edition.
In the Q&A, Chris outlines the benefits of Guernsey as a fund domicile and how the jurisdiction has reacted to Covid-19 and Brexit.
Questions asked by Reals Deals included:
- What are the key benefits of domiciling a PE fund in Guernsey? And, what types of funds are already domiciled there?
- Guernsey is known for its reputation as a green haven, with its Guernsey Green Fund regime. Has the increased focus on ESG and impact investing directed more funds to select Guernsey as a sustainable fund domicile?
- Looking ahead, how will Guernsey, as a fund domicile, develop and mature following the Covid-19 crisis and the UK’s eventual exit from the EU?
Together with the Q&A, Real Deals also spoke to our Managing Director in Guernsey, James Tracey, on the value of Guernsey as a fund jurisdiction, especially due to its response to Covid-19 and the capacity of its financial services industry which continued operating through lockdown.
