Our global regulatory and compliance team advises financial services businesses on all regulatory and compliance matters relating to the provision of investment advice, including the establishment of investment advisory businesses in Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey, the provision of investment advice into those jurisdictions, and ongoing contentious and non-contentious regulatory and compliance advice.
The team focuses on ensuring that clients have access to the regulatory knowledge and insight they need to operate smoothly and effectively. Our investment advisory clients range from international banks and financial services institutions to local investment advisers. Our advice is tailored to suit their specific goals, cutting through the layers of law and regulation to deliver practical and focussed guidance.
We have strong links with the regulators, including the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA), the BVI Financial Services Commission (BVIFSC), the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA), the Guernsey Financial Services Commission (GFSC) and the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC). We support our clients in developing and maintaining productive relationships with the regulatory authorities in our five jurisdictions, including advising them on regulatory investigations.
