Through our series of funds focussed events, both in London and in our key overseas markets across Europe, the US, Asia, the Gulf region and Africa, we have regularly sought to unravel some of the major initiatives and trends shaping global fund structuring.

Taking a deep dive into core, specific areas to gain an in-depth understanding of the highly sophisticated world in which we live is absolutely vital to an International Finance Centre (IFC) like Jersey, that has earned a reputation over six decades as a specialist hub – and particularly as a specialist European destination for alternatives.

Each of our Funds Focus events held in 2022 will centre around one of the key issues impacting alternative funds and at our most recent event we turned our attentions to the topic of taxation in an event titled ‘The Tax Landcape – Changes, Challenges and Opportunities’.

Following a keynote presentation from Rupert Lee from Deloitte UK, our panellists, moderated by Gavin Wilkins from sponsor Hawksford, were Mary Bruen from Ocorian, Tim Hill from PwC, and Tim Morgan from Maples Group. Between them they considered the recently published detailed rules on OECD Pillar I and II, which will bring about the implementation of a landmark reform to the international tax system as well as substance rules for partnerships, the recent joint Channel Islands guidance, plus several other tax related developments for funds including the QAHC regime.

A further two Funds Focus events will take place later this year, in the meantime, you can find out more about Jersey as a destination for alternative funds here.
