Strong growth for Jersey Private Fund as structure passes 500 mark
The total number of registered Jersey Private Funds (JPFs) has surpassed the 500 mark, according to the latest figures, as the structure continues to assert its appeal for flexible alternative fund structuring.
According to the latest quarterly statistics collated by the Jersey Financial Services Commission and published by Jersey Finance, there were 502 JPFs at the end of September 2021, a number that has risen by 38% compared to the same time the previous year.
Launched in 2017, the JPF structure is tailored to the needs of small numbers of sophisticated investors and offers high levels of flexibility, fast-track authorisation and lighter touch ongoing regulatory requirements. Further, the nimble nature of the structure mean it chimes particularly well with the tried and tested private placement route for marketing funds into Europe as well as within the ESG space.
Commenting on the figures, Jersey Finance CEO, Joe Moynihan, said:
“These latest figures show the enduring strength of the JPF, particularly when it comes to private capital co-investment and cross-border institutional alternative fund structuring. By being cost-effective, flexible and swift to market, the structure has genuinely become a go-to vehicle that has, undoubtedly, played a part in the sizeable growth we’ve seen in our funds sector as a whole.”
