Lawson Conner, a provider of investment management and compliance solutions to the alternative investment fund industry, has launched ‘Discovery’, an AIFM integrated offshore Investment Management Platform.
‘Discovery' will be structured as a Cayman Islands Segregated Portfolio Company (SPC), offering both EU and non-EU domiciled investment managers the opportunity to utilise a prompt and cost-effective 'plug-and-play' solution for multiple jurisdictions, while still offering fund managers the safety they would expect from operating their own dedicated fund structure. Funds can be launched within four-weeks under Cayman Islands law and in line with AIFMD regulations. Each ‘Discovery’ sub-fund has segregated liability and is therefore protected from the inherent risks of other managers’ portfolios.
“'Discovery' is simply unparalleled in the market. There is nothing comparable out there in terms of launch speed, flexibility and protection. The Cayman Islands structure gives managers access to a global investors base in a cost efficient way,” says Gerhard Grueter, Managing Director at Lawson Conner.
