Why Choose Cayman as a Fund Domicile?

  • Having spoken with many investors over the years, we have ascertained that there are various factors as a domicile for hedge fund Cayman Islands:
  • Fast to Market – The speed of bringing a new fund to market is excellent, with the ability set up a new fund in a few days (subject to fund documentation first being agreed).
  • Regulation – The Cayman regulatory regime is very well balanced and works well from an investor’s perspective.
  • Costs – Relative to other fund jurisdictions, the cost of setting up a fund is fairly inexpensive.
  • Service Providers – One stop shop jurisdiction, where all required service providers are available on-island.
  • Political stability and tax neutrality.
