Cayman Funds

  • IMS has long been a pioneer in the world of services to offshore financial and other entities. We recognised early on the potential for the funds industry in the Cayman Islands to grow the jurisdiction to become a premier financial centre, ranking only behind the likes of London and New York.
  • We were the first  in the Cayman Islands to specialise in providing independent directors to hedge funds. Our services comply with the Cayman Islands Director Registration and Licensing Law (the Law) and we pride ourselves on being a premier firm in the space– many other providers of director services have modelled themselves on us.
  • In a nutshell, the Cayman Islands has ensured its strong position by providing a balanced regulatory approach with a legal system based on English common law, which, coupled with its inherent political stability has meant that the jurisdiction has been, and continues to be, attractive to domicile a hedge fund structure. Licensing and regulatory requirements do not require local custodians, investment managers or directors, as it is accepted that relevant stakeholders are suitably regulated or controlled either in or outwith the Cayman Islands.
  • Bearing in mind that hedge funds are aimed squarely at professional, institutional and sophisticated investors, the law in the Cayman Islands does not place restrictions on investment objectives, risks, leverage or other commercial matters etc., provided the fund offering documents fully describe the same as well as the equity interests investors may subscribe for.
  • Please view the other pages within this Cayman Funds section of our site to fully appreciate the benefits of domiciling your hedge fund in the Cayman Islands.
