A Walkers team led by Group Partner Leanne Wallser has advised GCW Global Customised Wealth on the establishment of a Jersey fund investing across asset classes.

The team led by Leanne, which included senior associate Joseph Barker-Willis, advised on the Jersey law elements of the fund launch, working with lead English and US counsel Schulte Roth & Zabel International LLP.

The fund, structured as an open-ended Jersey corporate fund, will invest across a broad range of traditional and alternative investment strategies, including public equity securities, fixed income securities, private equity, venture capital, foreign exchange, real assets, FX investments, futures, derivatives, options and hedge funds.

Leanne said: “We are very pleased to have been able to advise GCW and to have worked with Schulte Roth & Zabel on this new fund, which demonstrates once again the versatility and international appeal of the Jersey Private Fund model.”
