Jersey Private Funds Update

04 July 2024

Changes to the Jersey Private Funds Guide have clarified important points about co-investment arrangements and investor eligibility where investors' circumstances change.

The changes have been published by the Jersey Financial Services Commission, the Island's financial services regulator, and have taken effect immediately.

The key points from the update are:

  • confirmation that a co-investment arrangement, when forming part of an incentivisation plan for a JPF's management team, isn't itself a JPF and isn’t counted as an investor for the purposes of the '50 or fewer' calculation, and
  • confirmation that investor eligibility is determined at the time of admittance to a JPF, and can’t be lost as a result of a subsequent change of investor circumstances.

Bedell Cristin partner Richard Le Liard, who advises Jersey-law governed investment funds on structuring, launches and regulatory issues, said: "The modifications announced by the regulator are positive and reflect a proactive approach from the JFSC to maintain the continued success of JPFs.

"These changes are the product of significant collaboration between the Jersey funds industry and the JFSC to ensure the JPF Regime continues to be aligned with investor needs, evolving market conditions and new regulatory demands."
