Jersey – an increasingly attractive proposition for Asian fund managers

6 September 2023

Jersey Finance has been active in the Asian market for almost two decades, and has made significant inroads into China through its Hong Kong office, which it established almost 15 years ago. Since then it has increased its visibility in mainland China through Shanghai which has been pivotal in raising Jersey’s profile, particularly in the corporate and private client space.

In more recent years, Jersey’s appeal has spread further across the South East Asia region, with the jurisdiction evolving its proposition further to increasingly support Asian fund managers who are looking outside their region for new partner fund jurisdictions. 

In particular, a new Jersey Finance presence was established in Singapore last year, accompanied by a refreshed Asia strategy to continue to diversify Jersey’s proposition across the wider region - and this is backed up by an attractive offering of a double-tax agreement between Jersey and Singapore.  

Jersey was already perceived by investors and managers in the region as a well-respected, well-regulated, tax neutral, stable partner IFC. Increasingly it is receiving recognition too for its specialist expertise in the alternative asset classes, from private equity and venture capital, to real estate and infrastructure - all of which are appreciated by the Asian managers. Jersey is also primed to support the emerging digital assets space too.

This connectivity between Jersey and Asia is reflected through our own workflows at Suntera. We have a well-established Hong Kong office, and are regular visitors to Singapore, and we are seeing a steady flow of digital asset funds coming to Jersey along with managers choosing Jersey as their fund domicile when investing in UK real estate.

If you are currently considering Jersey as your fund domicile, or would like to know more about how we can assist you with our fund offering, please get in touch.
