The BVI funds legislation provides a flexible, user-friendly and recognised framework
for the establishment of collective investment vehicles. Our funds team offers efficient,
practical and cost effective advice to asset managers, promoters, public, private and
professional funds and other industry participants on the structuring and restructuring of
BVI funds and on regulatory and compliance issues affecting funds.

We are able to offer advice on formation and management of different fund structures
including segregated portfolio funds, master/feeder funds and funds of funds, offering
documentation, and agreements with investment managers, administrators and
custodians. We receive instructions from a wide range of international clients and can
assist with identification of counsel and service providers throughout the world where
necessary through our international network. Our goal is to provide the highest level of
service to our clients whether they are incorporating a private fund or arranging for the
listing of a fund on a stock exchange.

With nearly half a million active BVI companies, it is no surprise that there continues to
be a great deal of interest in the establishment of registered agents in the BVI. We have
guided many clients through the regulatory process of obtaining approval and ‘setting
up shop’ in the BVI. Not only have we helped new registered agents to set up, but
provide ongoing advice on compliance, AML and other related regulatory issues to
our stables of clients that include registered agents, banks and other money services
clients. Our close and good working relationship with the regulator, the BVI Financial
Services Commission, ensures that we can always give the best practical advice to our

Investment Business
Since the coming into force of the Securities and Investment Business Act, 2010, many
types of investment business have become regulated in the BVI. From the outset, our
Investment Business and Regulatory team dedicated itself to becoming thoroughly
familiar with the new legislation. This early commitment has paid off, allowing our team
to be able to successfully obtain various licences for clients including forex, broker-
dealer, investor advisor and custodian licences.
