Offshore fund services

Everything you need to set up and manage your offshore investment fund.

  • Fund setup and administration in Mauritius & Seychelles

    This involves establishing the legal and regulatory framework for the fund, including choosing the appropriate structure, drafting offering documents, obtaining regulatory approvals, and appointing custodians and administrators. Both Mauritius and Seychelles offer attractive options for fund domiciliation due to their favourable tax regimes and regulatory environments.

  • Administration for funds domiciled outside Mauritius

    Even if your fund is not domiciled in Mauritius or Seychelles, you may still benefit from administration services provided by Mauritius- or Seychelles-based specialists. These services can include investor onboarding, transaction processing, regulatory reporting, and performance measurement.

  • Compliance services

    Ensuring compliance with all relevant laws and regulations is crucial for any investment fund. This service typically covers areas such as anti-money laundering (AML), know-your-customer (KYC), and sanctions compliance.

  • Company secretarial services

    These services ensure the smooth running of the fund’s corporate governance by handling tasks such as maintaining company records, preparing for board meetings, and filing annual reports.

  • Reporting & filing

    We handle all reporting and filing requirements with precision, keeping you in full compliance.

  • Accounting services

    Accurate and timely financial reporting is essential for any investment fund. This service covers tasks such as bookkeeping, preparing financial statements, and managing tax affairs.

  • Registrar services

    Registrar services ensure the accuracy and security of these records, as well as handle shareholder communications and proxy voting.

  • Net asset value calculation

    Calculating the net asset value (NAV) of the fund is essential for determining the value of each investor’s holding. This service ensures accurate and timely NAV calculations, which are crucial for investor confidence and regulatory compliance.

FAQ

Common questions & answers.

What are offshore fund services, and how do they differ from onshore funds?

Offshore fund services refer to financial services provided in jurisdictions outside the investor’s home country. These services are typically associated with investment funds established in offshore financial centers, offering advantages such as tax efficiency, regulatory flexibility, and confidentiality. Unlike onshore funds, which operate within the investor’s domestic jurisdiction, offshore funds cater to a global investor base and often provide greater diversification opportunities.

What are the key benefits of utilising offshore fund services?

Offshore fund services offer several advantages, including:

  • Tax efficiency: Offshore jurisdictions often provide favourable tax environments, allowing investors to minimise their tax liabilities on capital gains, dividends, and other investment income.
  • Regulatory flexibility: Offshore funds may benefit from regulatory frameworks that are more flexible and efficient than those in onshore jurisdictions, reducing administrative burdens and enhancing operational flexibility.
  • Confidentiality: Offshore jurisdictions often prioritise financial privacy, providing investors with a level of confidentiality that may not be available in onshore settings.
How can investors access offshore fund services, and what factors should they consider?

Investors can access offshore fund services through financial institutions and service providers specialising in offshore jurisdictions. When considering offshore funds, investors should evaluate factors such as:

  • Jurisdiction selection: Different offshore jurisdictions offer varying regulatory environments, tax structures, and levels of financial stability. Investors should carefully choose a jurisdiction that aligns with their specific needs and preferences.
  • Risk management: Assess the risk associated with the offshore fund, considering factors such as investment strategy, asset class exposure, and the fund manager’s track record.
  • Legal and regulatory compliance: Ensure that the chosen offshore fund complies with relevant legal and regulatory requirements. Working with experienced legal and financial advisors can assist investors in navigating complex compliance issues.
