Investment funds domiciled in the Cayman Islands still remain as the preferred jurisdiction for Japan investors as 2021 saw continued investment by Japan investors in various types of Cayman Islands funds. However, as fund offerings to Japan investors frequently involve the application of the AML/CRS/FATCA laws of multiple jurisdictions, there is often confusion on the application of the laws for both offshore fund managers who wish to raise capital in Japan as well as the Japan investors that seek to invest in Cayman Islands funds.

 

This webinar will seek to provide an overview of the AML, CRS and FATCA laws, which may be applicable for Cayman Islands funds offered in Japan. Our speakers will provide an overview of the application of the laws of the Cayman Islands and Japan in relation to Japan offering as well as provide practical guidance on how Japan investors may seek to comply with the laws from the standpoint of a fund administrator.
