The world’s top asset management groups, hedge funds, private equity and venture capital firms domicile their funds in leading offshore financial centres like Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands due to the operational efficiencies, speed to market and progressive legislation.

When choosing a legal service provider offshore you need a name you can trust, not only with the establishment of your investment fund, but throughout its lifecycle.
