JFSC says AIFMD registrations up
September 13, 2017

The number of alternative fund managers marketing into Europe through Jersey's national private placement regimes (NPPRs) continued to rise during the first half of 2017 whilst there has been a strong uptake in the latest addition to Jersey's regulatory regime, according to mid-year figures from Jersey's regulator the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC).

As at June 30, it calculates that 131 alternative investment fund managers (AIFMs) had been authorized in Jersey to market into Europe through NPPRs under the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD). This figure is up 14 percent compared to the same time last year.

In addition, the total number of Jersey alternative investment funds (AIFs) being marketed into Europe through NPPRs also increased to stand at 276, representing a ten percent year-on-year increase.

Meanwhile, the JFSC has also reported a strong uptake in the Jersey Private Fund (JPF) regime, the latest addition to Jersey's suite of fund structuring options, which was launched in April. As at 31 August 2017, there were 44 JPFs, with the majority being newly created fund vehicles with just under a fifth being conversions from existing structures.
