The key objective of the fund managers is to maximise the returns for their investors. Amongst other commercial, legal and operational considerations, ensuring a tax efficient fund structure is one of the important aspects that the fund managers need to consider in order to have a competitive edge against their peers. The above, together with management and planning considerations are key drivers not only to fund managers but also single / multi-family offices who are keen to manage their own/ third parties’ wealth and investments in an increasingly professional and structured manner in order to preserve old wealth, generate income and manage succession and estate planning for future generations.
In addition to the above, the complexity surrounding the taxation of the funds is ever evolving and hence, the structures that worked in the past may not be replicated for each fund without evaluating whether they are able to hold up to scrutiny in the current tax landscape.
