Why Guernsey

Guernsey is a leading specialist centre in the servicing of alternative assets. For nearly 50 years, the island has provided an alternative domicile for fund managers, and HFL has been part of the island’s financial services infrastructure since 1984.

Guernsey’s offering of continuity, stability, resilience and global market access, along with its efficient, simple and flexible regulatory regime, make the island a very attractive location for fund managers.

Fund Structures

Regulated Funds

We make it our mission to take care of fund administration details so you can focus on generating stellar returns.

Private Investment Funds ("PIFs")

Private Investment Funds, or PIFs, can offer greater flexibility and a more cost-effective fund solution than regulated funds, particularly for start-up managers.

Single Asset and Special Purpose Vehicles

HFL is experienced in forming subsidiaries using Special Purpose Vehicles to allow for operational and investor flexibility.


Flexibility and Innovation

We help our clients compete in a highly competitive environment and never miss a deal. We use our collective experience of working with venture capitalists to advise, set up and administer Guernsey funds structures.

The team at HFL constantly evolves and adapts to keep pace with fund managers; we combine flexibility and innovation with substance and compliance. 

Our data exchange platform integrates directly with our fund accounting system; investors can securely access their fund documents easily, centrally and independently, alerted when new information is available to view. HFL has best-class tools at its disposal, balancing the need for real-time data with controls to ensure accuracy.
