Fund Jurisdictions

Louvre Fund Services can provide fund vehicles and regulatory oversight in four major fund jurisdictions:

  • Guernsey
  • Cayman Islands
  • British Virgin Islands
  • Malta

We can also provide access to the European market, directly via Malta, or indirectly using Guernsey’s elective Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (“AIFMD”) regime.

Cayman Islands

Typically we establish and administer segregated portfolio companies and limited partnerships under Cayman law. Clients can also take advantage of the unregulated regime for closed-ended funds.

British Virgin Islands

Louvre can establish private and professional funds under BVI law, typically using segregated portfolio companies and limited partnerships.


Guernsey has become a preferred jurisdiction for private equity funds. Louvre’s fund team runs a number of closed-ended funds and has forged a solid reputation in alternative asset classes.

Guernsey’s most popular structures include protected cell companies and limited partnerships.

Guernsey has adopted an elective dual regime providing a European Union’s AIFMD compliant option. Designed to regulate hedge funds, this has been approved by the European Securities and Markets Authority.

Louvre is one of the few service providers in Guernsey that is able to establish and administer daily pricing open-ended funds, including Class A funds that carry UCITS equivalence status.

European Union

If UCITS status is required from within the European Union, Louvre Fund Services is also able to assist using Malta.
