Cayman still leading hedge fund domocile, survey says

| 15/09/2010

(hedgeweek): The Cayman Islands are still the predominant domicile for hedge funds, according to a survey of European hedge fund managers by Citigroup. There is no widespread move to re-domicile funds onshore ahead of final clarity on the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive. Onshore Ucits launches are prevalent among the larger managers, but still account for a small portion of overall hedge industry assets. There is ongoing demand for managed accounts, particularly from large institutional investors. Operational complexity is increasing as hedge fund managers offer a variety of products spanning traditional offshore domiciles, managed accounts and onshore domiciles.

    We may still be the predominant domicile, but companies are moving the administration side of hedge funds to other jurisdictions resulting in redundancies.
