Guernsey: The Natural Home for Private Capital

The term ‘private capital’ can be used to refer to the nature of the investor, namely family offices, high-net-worth individuals, private banking clients and other non-institutional investors, and it can also refer to the nature of the investment, i.e. investment in private companies as opposed to publicly traded companies, although the term encompasses much more than just private equity these days.

 

This article, written by Guernsey partner Kate Storey, looks at trends in the global private capital industry, principally the coming together of private investors with private equity and other private asset investments that have traditionally been the mainstay of institutional investors, and how Guernsey is the natural home for the bespoke structuring required for private capital investments.
