The Louvre Group’s founding office is in Guernsey, one of the Channel Islands which are situated between the UK and France. It has earned a reputation as a highly respected finance centre.
Guernsey combines tight regulation with an innovative approach, a modern and robust legislative framework, coupled with commercial acumen and practical experience.
Guernsey’s innovation has seen the introduction of protected cell companies and a foundation law with a unique distinction between defined beneficiaries.
The jurisdiction also pioneered image rights legislation as a separate intellectual property classification.
With five decades of funds industry experience, Guernsey continues to attract new funds business. The island took a proactive stance on the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (“AIFMD”). The European Securities and Markets Authority (“ESMA”) allows Guernsey AIMFD-compliant funds to be accessible in the European Union.
As a British Crown Dependency, Guernsey is a secure and stable environment and has a robust legislative framework. The island has strong links to the UK, the City of London and the EU.
