Having such a high calibre organisation on the Island is a testament to our new dynamic and comprehensive funds regime we now have available. It also proves the success of the model we developed as part of our recent strategic review of the sector.

There is tremendous scope for the international hedge fund manager community in terms of working with the Island. We anticipate that our new funds initiative will accelerate growth of the number of hedge fund managers coming to the Island. We are confident of reaching our target of US$50 billion funds under management and US$100 billion of funds under administration by 2010."

In response Ross Turner, director, Pelham Capital Management commented: " As triple ‘A’ rated by Standard and Poor’s the Isle of Man offers an investment grade location for hedge fund managers; further the dual attraction of experienced staff and a competitive cost base make the Isle of Man a perfect location for our growing business. Further attractions for us are the Island’s tax neutral environment, strong regulatory reputation and it’s close proximity to our London office, within the same European time zone."
