Webinar to highlight investment opportunities of Guernsey funds for Africa
Guernsey’s reputation as a jurisdiction of choice for global investments is well established.
More recently, Guernsey funds are becoming increasingly popular with African fund managers. Compelling reasons such as time to launch, cost to establish and maintain structures, and the practicality of closely aligned time zones contribute to Guernsey’s popularity in this area.
Collas Crill has organised a webinar, in association with Werksmans Attorneys and Prism Chambers, to discuss two of the most common uses of Guernsey funds for Africa – for outbound investment and international expansion by African investors and for inbound investment by African and international investors.
The panellists will be Paul Wilkes (pictured) and Gareth Morgan of Collas Crill, Erich Bell of Werkmans Attorneys and Johanne Hague of Prism Chambers.
The seminar will include detail how to best facilitate international investment using underlying vehicles in either Mauritius or South Africa.
“South Africa is an important market for Collas Crill and Africa more generally represents an exciting opportunity over the coming 5 to 10 years,” said Paul Wilkes. “In this seminar we (and our prestigious guests panellists) will share insights on how best to structure a fund to help managers maximise their growth plans – whether into or out of the region.”
