Guernsey reaches record levels of private equity business

Posted: 06/02/2019

The value of private equity business in Guernsey reached its highest ever level at the end of September 2018, according to the latest fund statistics from the Guernsey Financial Services Commission.

The regulator confirmed that the net asset value of private equity funds in the island passed £120bn for the first time in Q3 2018.

Guernsey-based Ogier Partner Craig Cordle commented: “We continue to see strong inflows of new managers establishing structures here, taking advantage of City-experienced legal advisers, regulatory optionality and the ability to get transactions completed on time.

“Traditional private equity has broadened demonstrably over the short term – private equity means something different to everyone, but the mechanics and structuring remain largely unchanged. Guernsey continues to provide a cost-effective service to new and existing clients.”
