In a keynote interview, part of PERE (Private Equity and Real Estate) Fund Domiciles and Regulation report 2022, our Head of Funds at Jersey Finance, Elliot Refson, explains how, by responding early and decisively to regulatory pressures, Jersey has stolen a march on rival fund domiciles.

Answering question such as; what must fund domiciles consider when seeking to establish the correct balance between robust regulation and investor appeal; what investors need to consider when choosing whether to access EU markets through onshore or offshore vehicles; and how has specialization helped to support growth in the Jersey funds industry, Elliot details the key regulatory changes that have led to a shift in domiciliation choices and explains the appeal of the Jersey Private Fund structure, five years since its introduction.

Additionally, looking to the future, the interview covers what Jersey as a jurisdiction is doing to adapt to a new era of digital assets and how the increased importance of ESG to investors will affect fund domiciliation decisions.
