The indications are that, in the long-term, investors will continue to look to the alternative asset classes to achieve better returns, capture new opportunities, protect assets and diversify portfolios – but there are clear challenges on the horizon when it comes to alternative fund structuring and domiciliation decisions.
Various obstacles, from market access, regulation, cost and asset valuations as well as the significant fallout of the coronavirus pandemic this year, are all making the alternatives landscape much more complex and look set to have a major impact on private equity and real estate deal completion and structuring. As a result, managers are weighing up their options and fund domiciles are having to respond appropriately and innovatively.
Please join us for this webinar, where Elliot Refson, Director of Funds at Jersey Finance, will explore current trends in the alternatives space alongside other private equity and real estate fund experts and discuss key issues such as tax neutrality, AIFMD and global fund distribution through to substance, tax, regulation and reporting.
Panelists will also examine how Jersey has responded to recent regulatory initiatives, such as BEPS and changes to non-resident Capital Gains Tax for UK real estate holdings, how IFCs are innovating in a changing environment, and what the future might hold for private equity and real estate professionals.
