Offshore: Channelling India
India's economic growth in recent years has prompted ever-increasing interest from potential inward investors who, faced with challenging domestic situations, wish to diversify into emerging markets. For many years, the Channel Islands have enjoyed a prominent role in the structuring of private equity and real estate funds investing in Europe. But many European fund promoters are increasingly looking at opportunities in more far-flung markets, including the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) economies. Indian promotors have also recognised the potential of tapping European inward investment by establishing Jersey fund vehicles.Promoters of investment funds can choose between a number of offshore jurisdictions. But what currently distinguishes Jersey from competitors such as Guernsey, the British Virgin Islands (BVI), the Cayman Islands and the Isle of Man is that since the introduction of 'unregulated funds' regimes in February 2008, Jersey now stands alone in offering a full spectrum of fund regulation. This ranges from rigorous regulation of publicly offered retail funds, through to completely unregulated regimes.
