Fund managers often ask me what the best jurisdiction is to establish a Forex fund.

Here at IFINA, we recommend the Cayman Islands as a fund jurisdiction for fledgeling Forex fund managers.

Why? The Cayman Islands is the leading domicile for offshore professional investment funds, attracting 80% of all new offshore fund formations.

The jurisdiction also houses more than 75% of the world’s offshore hedge funds – and nearly half of the industry’s estimated US$1.1 trillion of assets under management.

The Cayman Islands is also a recognised territory by professional and institutional investors, along with the financial counterparties such as banks, brokers and auditors.

We offer our clients a low cost and all-inclusive fund solution via our Cayman Islands Fund Platform: the IFINA SPC.

IFINA SPC is a Cayman Islands Segregated Portfolio Company (SPC) – and for less than USD 10,000, we can provide a legally segregated portfolio (sub-fund) which provides you with your owned named professional investment fund.

This formation includes a fund prospectus, ISIN and Bloomberg codes, establishment of bank and broker accounts. It’s a totally all-inclusive cost.

The IFINA SPC is regulated by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA). It has proven to be extremely popular with start-up FX managers keen to enter the regulated and audited fund arena for the first time.
