Starting a Hedge Fund in BVI

With the high number of tax laws in the United States combined with coming financial and tax reforms, starting a Hedge Fund in BVI (British Virgin Islands) has become an even more popular choice for fund managers. Even if you are looking at forming your first fund, you should consider starting a BVI Fund. The tax advantages of using an off shore fund can increase the profitability for both you and your investors.

Added complication comes with formation of off-shore account. Along with the typical domestic fund formation setup:

• Create a Fund Team
