Private Funds: Where and How?

2018 Edition

By Dechert LLP

The choice of domicile or jurisdiction for a hedge fund is a critical factor in the structuring process. It is a choice made more complicated by the bewildering array of jurisdictions all competing for market share in the offshore fund business. The laws, legal structure and local infrastructure of each jurisdiction need to be considered when choosing a jurisdiction with the perception of particular jurisdictions among target investors impacting on the decision. When looking at European jurisdictions, consideration must also be given to the implications of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive ('AIFM Directive'). This book examines and analyzes key factors in 16 of the leading hedge fund domiciles. Each chapter is written in conjunction with expert local firms, with each chapter following a detailed template for ease of reference for the reader. The book also includes a very useful comparative table, which is designed to be used as a tool in conjunction with the detailed text on each jurisidiction, highlighting the key jurisdiction variables. This authoritative, unique, practical comparative guide to setting up and managing hedge funds is a must read for both banking and finance practitioners and hedge fund managers.
