Private Equity Funds:

Guernsey has built up a strong global reputation as a leading provider for flexible fund structures suitable for a wide range of investment types (with particular expertise with private equity Funds). Apex Guernsey is able to administer all types of private equity fund as well as the related entities such as special purpose vehicles, management companies and carry vehicles.

A ‘Guernsey Limited Partnership’ is the preferred vehicle for most funds as it is a tax transparent vehicle not subject to local taxation. This, along with the basic rate of income tax on company profits being 0%, makes Guernsey a particularly attractive jurisdiction for tax efficient investment structures.

Real Estate Funds:

Real estate funds and structures have been prevalent on the Island since the early 1980s. The property structures supported by Apex Guernsey include general partnerships, limited partnerships, Guernsey registered funds and structures listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) or traded on AIM. We are also able to administer related entities such as special purpose vehicles, management companies and carry vehicles.

Listed Funds:

Guernsey has been home to listed investment funds since 1953. Currently there are over 70 investment funds domiciled on the island, the largest number of funds listed in one jurisdiction on the LSE, with the exception of the UK. At Apex Guernsey we have experience in launching and administering listed vehicles on either AIM, the LSE or the Channel islands Securities Exchange.

Hedge Funds:

Guernsey is a well respected and long standing jurisdiction for the establishment of hedge funds and fund of hedge funds. This asset class forms a large part of the overall fund industry on the island. At Apex Guernsey we can service all types of hedge fund and are able to offer start up managers access to our cost effective open-ended PCC incubator platform.

Whether a fund is domiciled locally or offshore, our flexibility and ability to tailor our services ensure we are an invaluable resource and support for our clients. Through the global Apex brand, we deliver confidence, transparency and security to investment managers and to investors in both Guernsey, and across the rest of the world.
