  • Brexit – the two year countdown begins

    Content Types: ArticleRegions & Countries: United KingdomCayman Islands...Industries: Banking & Finance
    The United Kingdom served its Article 50 notice today, giving two years’ notice to leave the European Union. Managers of offshore funds, as well as everyone else here in the UK, now have more clarity on the Brexit timetable, with the UK scheduled to be out of the EU in March 2019.

The 2016 Atlantic hurricane season was equally active: the most expensive since 2012 and the deadliest since 2005.

    Much emphasis is placed on ensuring the accurate use of the name of any BVI company as it conducts its business and quite rightfully so. As with anything else, a company’s name both introduces and identifies it to the world and so the importance of getting that right cannot be overstated.

    Content Types: ArticleRegions & Countries: Cayman IslandsBritish Virgin IslandsIndustries: AllServices: TaxLegal
    The Cayman Islands lie approximately 1,000 miles due west of the British Virgin Islands and the jurisdiction’s legal system shares many similarities with the BVI’s legal system. Both are English common law jurisdictions, which were formerly part of larger federated states before they split away.
  • Chinese outbound investment and the role of the BVI company

    Content Types: ArticleRegions & Countries: British Virgin IslandsServices: Legal
    Chinese investors are increasingly looking abroad for investment opportunities to gain access to new markets, advanced technology and brand development. Chinese outbound investment has grown even during the financial crisis which, for cash-rich Chinese companies, has provided a market for lower-cost foreign asset acquisitions. Access to natural resources has been a driving force behind Chinese outbound investment in Asia, Australia, Africa and...
