Do any investment or borrowing restrictions apply to the portfolios of alternative investment funds?

Answer ... Guernsey funds authorised or registered under any regime other than the ‘Class A’ Rules may institute their own investment and borrowing strategies and restrictions.

Class A funds are governed by a regime similar to undertakings for collective investment in transferable securities (UCITs) and the borrowing and investment restrictions must comply with the UCITs Directive.
