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.

Will these changes really entice Hong Kong based hedge fund managers to set up funds in Hong Kong?
