Fund Domicile Selection: Enabling Global Alternative Asset Growth
February 7, 2023
Explore the domicile selection process for U.S. private capital managers seeking expansion.
Global investor demand for alternative investment is increasing as they seek to meet a range of objectives (e.g., diversification, income generation, higher returns) that have become harder to achieve with public equity and fixed income alone. Since year-end 2018, global private investment assets have almost doubled, increasing 92% and posting double digit increases each calendar year through 2021. Global alternative investment markets reached $8.7 trillion as of 3Q 2022 and hedge funds held another $3.6 trillion as of 2021.
Cerulli’s white paper, sponsored by Guernsey Finance/We Are Guernsey, examines the increasingly important decision of where to domicile funds for non-U.S. investors.
Use this white paper to understand key decision points:
Understand how domicile preferences vary across regions and client segments
Review the functional roles (e.g., legal, sales/marketing, accounting, product) typically involved in the domicile decision
How much importance should be placed on regulatory regimes, service providers, substance requirements, and other considerations
