Jersey Finance is delighted to welcome you to this lunch event in Miami, as part of our US Roadshow ‘Driving Stateside Ambition: The Future of Funds’.

This session will look at fund domiciliation and the evolution of international finance centres, and crucially, the issues that affect alternative investment fund managers in the US, including various challenges and opportunities in raising funds overseas.

Topics for discussion will include access to Europe for US fund managers and the sunset of reverse solicitation, political challenges and blacklisting threats, substance legislation, Jersey’s expertise in real estate, the corporate securitization market, and factors that need to be considered when selecting a jurisdiction.

There will be speakers and a panel session at the event. You can register here.
