Structuring a dedicated offshore ManCo or non EU AIFM, and partnering with Highvern, can provide advantages in terms of cost, flexibility, resources, speed of establishment, regulation and control.

For asset operators, spin outs, emerging managers and established fund advisers, setting up a ManCo or AIFM can be extremely resource-intensive, requiring time, manpower and knowledge of applicable regulations. Partnering with us allows our clients to quickly establish a presence, avoid delays, cut initial expenditure and increase return on investment.

Our funds business comprises former senior investment managers, regulators, lawyers, auditors and administrators with real practical experience of ManCos and non EU AIFMs from many viewpoints.
