The Guernsey Financial Services Commission (the GFSC) introduced the Guernsey Green Fund designation to provide investment managers an opportunity to “assure investors that their investments are contributing to initiatives that have a positive environmental impact on the planet and in so doing inspire confidence that their investments are well regulated”. The designation is available to registered and authorised schemes which are run in accordance with the Guernsey Green Funds Rules issued by the GFSC on 6 July 2018.

The Guernsey Green Fund kite mark will be capable of being used in connection with Guernsey registered or authorised schemes whose assets are invested with the aim of spreading risk and with the ultimate objective of mitigating environmental damage resulting in a net positive outcome for the environment.
