The article reports that in February 2004, the expert fund regime was introduced in Jersey, Channel Islands, for the establishment of funds aimed at institutional and high-net-worth investors. The introduction of the expert funds regime signified a change in the regulatory environment in Jersey to accommodate the changing requirements of fund promoters and the fund industry in general. The introduction of this new category of fund has made Jersey a very attractive jurisdiction for the establishment of specialist-type funds such as private equity, property and hedge funds.
