Cayman Islands Mutual Fund

The Cayman Islands is perhaps the world’s most well-developed international financial center. This is driven in large part by country’s large, dynamic offshore banking sector. Since the early 2000’s the Cayman Islands’ status as the premier offshore jurisdiction has grown as it has become the preferred route for financial flows in and out of China.

Offering zero tax on offshore profits, the Cayman Islands has long been a significant jurisdiction for domiciling hedge funds, mutual funds and reinsurance companies. Competing on the world stage as an international financial center, not just an offshore outpost, the Cayman Islands has developed sophisticated financial regulation that continues to attract major asset managers.

The Cayman Islands is an ideal jurisdiction for the formation and registration of an investment or hedge fund. The Cayman Islands offers a robust a mutual fund registration that provides the asset manager with significant flexibility in terms of asset class and investment strategy. As a result, a majority of the world’s hedge funds have flocked to the Cayman Islands for this well-recognized, cost effective hedge fund registration structure.

Advantages of a Cayman Islands Mutual Fund

Since the advent of hedge funds in the 1970’s, asset managers have flocked to tax-advantaged jurisdictions to shelter their above-market gains from punitive tax rates in traditional jurisdictions such as the United States and United Kingdom. That trend has continued through today as sophisticated investors have come to expect often complex, private tax-neutral structures for their investments. As such, the Cayman Islands is a preferred jurisdiction for a registered investment fund.
