Bermuda’s flexibility and ease of use for the creation and administration of investment funds is well recognised. As one of the world’s leading offshore jurisdictions, it is a premier domicile for private equity groups. Neil Henderson of Conyers’ Bermuda office and Peter Ch’ng of Conyers’ Hong Kong office discuss the advantages of Bermuda for PE funds in traditional sponsor jurisdictions as well as new markets in Asia.
How popular is Bermuda as a domicile for PE funds?
NH: Bermuda has been a top choice for PE funds for many years. The figures speak for themselves – almost all of top US and European Private Equity (PE) groups have either domiciled structures in Bermuda or have interests in Bermuda funds.
