Jersey: Top Tier Verdict For Ogier's Jersey Investment Funds Team
Last Updated: 21 November 2016

Ogier has been placed in the top tier of legal advisers to the investment funds sector by the influential Monterey Insight guide to Jersey's funds industry.

The independently-produced review compiles statistics about the number and value of funds under administration in the Island to give a comprehensive guide to legal advisers, administrators, auditors and custodians in the funds arena.

Niamh Lalor, who heads the Jersey Investment Funds team, welcomed the publication, which confirmed Ogier's leading position for fund formation in Jersey and its number one position for unregulated funds.

Niamh, who in the last few months has been named as a leading lawyer by IFLR, as a leading individual by Legal 500 and been ranked in the Chambers and Partners guide, said that the Monterey guide supported recent praise for the Jersey Investment Funds team across the respective directories.

She said: "The statistics show that we are in the top tier of Investment Funds advisers, and that we are market leaders in advising unregulated funds, which are primarily aimed at US and Asian markets.

"The figures endorse and support the recent client feedback and praise from independent directories, and are a credit to the skill and hard work of our team."

The team's recent work includes the closing of the AEW Value Investors Asia II Fund, which raised commitments totalling $590.2 million for AEW Capital Management, advising Index Ventures on its latest $550 million fund targeting seed and venture capital investments in Europe, the US and Israel, and advising Paloma Capital LLP in relation to the launch of a Jersey Private Placement Fund.

The recent feedback for the Investment Funds team includes the following comments taken from client feedback: "They're easy to work with, they're responsive and we deal with a strong team of people. I do admire their team approach" (Chambers and Partners); "Good understanding of the local market; commercial awareness; proactive approach to working on projects" (IFLR); "Efficient and user-friendly team" (Legal 500).
