Offshore Funds

The Offshore Funds Blog is dedicated to demystifying offshore investment funds: why investment managers use them and how they work. We also write about the latest offshore funds news from the BVI, Cayman, Cyprus and Luxembourg. It's written by lawyers, but we try to keep it interesting anyway.

The financial services industry in the UK is likely to be significantly affected by Brexit, with various international investment banks having now announced that they’re reviewing their operations here, given the uncertainty over whether they will still be able to passport their financial services and products across Europe from London.
