An article by our Head of Funds, Elliot Refson, promoting Jersey’s funds industry and our proposition in the US market, has been published on AYU’s digital platform.

AYU is a private members club that connects a global community of hedge funds, family offices and alternative investment professionals. It’s therefore the ideal arena to showcase Jersey’s credentials and expertise in the funds sector.

In the article, Elliot explains why Jersey is an attractive location for cross-border investment and, particularly, why we are the ideal gateway to Europe for non-EU fund managers – specifically against the backdrop of the EU’s Alternative Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD).

The piece highlights the appeal – and success – of Jersey Private Funds, as well as the recent enhancements to Jersey’s limited partnership legislation. Elliot also reports on how Jersey is focused on integrating technology and digital capabilities into our framework to support functions including onboarding, compliance and reporting.

The article includes important statistics to illustrate the main points made, leaving readers in no doubt as to Jersey’s capabilities and achievements to date.
