Among fund management companies, the largest fund promoter of Jersey domiciled schemes is ETF Securities (US$20.8bn), followed by Nordic Capital with $10.7bn. Private equity/venture capital funds have the greatest assets and account for 30.6% of funds domiciled on the Island with US$49bn, closely followed by real estate funds which represent 25.1% of assets domiciled ($40.3bn). “This research highlights that Private equity/venture capital funds remain crucial for the Island’s funds industry, although the growth of ETFs domiciled here has been an important development. It has been a pleasure to work with the local industry for the eighteenth year to deliver high quality research that helps those involved to grow their businesses,” comments Karine Pacary, Managing Director of Monterey Insight.
