The net asset value of all funds under administration and management in the jurisdiction now stands at £222.2 billion, with 25 new investment funds approved in the first quarter of 2015.
Dominic Wheatley, Chief Executive of Guernsey Finance – the promotional agency for the Island’s finance industry – said: “It is encouraging to see strong growth in the Guernsey funds sector at the start of this year – not only in terms of the net asset value of funds under management and administration but also in the number of new funds approved in the quarter.
“With this news coming just a month after we hosted the best-ever attended Guernsey Funds Forum in London, with more than 500 delegates, it reinforces Guernsey’s attractiveness as a leading funds centre.”
The 25 new investment funds approved by the GFSC between the start of January and the end of March comprised two open ended funds, 14 closed-ended funds and nine non-Guernsey open-ended schemes, meaning the total number of funds currently approved for domiciling or servicing in Guernsey stands at 1,053 – up five from the position at the end of last year. It also means that for the 12 months to the end of March, there were 136 additions in total.
