Ashley Le Feuvre, Director of VG Funds, commented “Jersey as a jurisdiction has seen its funds business reach an all-time high, breaking through the £300 billion barrier in Q3 2018*. This is great news for service providers such as VG who are looking to offer an alternative solution for clients. By combining industry leading systems with VG’s in-house expertise, we continue to innovate and grow – providing a fast, flexible and responsive service of the highest quality to clients whilst operating within Jersey’s robust regulatory and legislative framework. These promotions are hugely well-deserved and it will be exciting to see what 2019 brings throughout the funds sector for Jersey.”
Mark Hucker, MD of VG said “over eighty percent of Jersey’s total funds business came from alternative asset classes in 2018*. This is proof that Jersey offers an attractive proposition to alternative fund promoters and, as an independent and privately-owned service provider, we are in a terrific position to take advantage of this momentum in the market. We offer a bespoke, personal service and aim to grow in the longer term with our clients and partners. These changes recognise the great work our funds team has done, the quality of key individuals and the exciting opportunity we see in the sector.”
