Funds legislation in Guernsey has evolved rapidly in the last ten years, particularly following the introduction of the Protected Cell Company legislation.

The funds services team at Babbé LLP are able to advise and assist institutions and individual asset managers with the correct structure and vehicle to suit their purpose and then to guide them through the application and submission process. 

We have the experience and expertise to assist the retail and institutional manager and can advise on traditional structuring such as closed-ended or open-ended funds; the relative benefits of umbrella funds, limited partnerships and trusts; through to the use of more recent legislation such as the Protected Cell Company and, since 2006, the Incorporated Cell Company.
