In the interview, Mariana discusses Guernsey as a jurisdiction of choice for London Stock Exchange listed vehicles, listing trends and risks and the main distinctions between Guernsey authorised and registered funds.
Q: Guernsey has more entities listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) than any other jurisdiction globally (excluding the UK). Why do so many promoters, investment managers and investors choose Guernsey?
A: Guernsey is a leading jurisdiction for investment funds and its long track record continues to attract promoters to the island. Guernsey has developed particular expertise in the set up and administration of listed funds across a variety of asset classes.
The quality of service providers (including administrators, custodians, registrars, legal advisors and auditors) and their deep understanding of the capital markets, coupled with favourable regulatory and fiscal regimes, have resulted in an infrastructure held in high regard by promoters and advisors alike. This favourable environment sets Guernsey apart and its dominant position as the jurisdiction of choice for LSE listed entities outside the UK is set to continue into the future.
