Gibraltar remains a top jurisdiction for crypto hedge funds

Gibraltar maintain its place as the third preferred jurisdiction for the domiciliation of hedge funds, behind the Cayman Islands and the British Virgin Islands, and ahead of the United States, according to the fourth annual research report into the global Crypto Hedge Fund space, commissioned by PwC and Elwood Asset Management.

Although the Cayman Islands maintained its top position, the British Virgin Islands replaced the US in second spot.

The data confirms that funds tend to be domiciled in the same jurisdictions as traditional hedge funds, supported by one of Gibraltar’s leading crypto and funds law firms, ISOLAS LLP. The firm continues to work with leading and disruptive crypto funds, managers and exchanges who choose Gibraltar for its advanced regulatory approach, particularly on crypto and distributed ledger technology, in addition to its work with traditional hedge funds.

The report shows that the total Assets under Management (AuM) of crypto hedge funds globally increased to over US$4.1 billion in 2021 from just over $3.8 billion in the previous year, an 8% increase despite the impact of the pandemic.
