• Trailer: Offshore v. Onshore Hedge Funds: A Comparison

    Contrary to offshore hedge funds, US-registered ("onshore") funds are subject to strict marketing prohibitions, accredited investor requirements, limited number of investors, and tax disadvantage. Professors George Aragon, Bing Liang, and Hyuna Park did a study in which they exploited this difference to test predictions about organizational design, capital flow, and fund performance. They found that onshore funds impose stronger share restrictions such as a lockup provision than offshore funds, but hold more liquid assets. Their results show that capital flows are less sensitive to past performance in onshore funds than in offshore funds due to regulation on advertising, and the flow sensitivity difference affects performance. Liquidity-adjusted alpha is positive and significant (0.94% per...

What is OFFSHORE INVESTMENT? What does OFFSHORE INVESTMENT mean? OFFSHORE INVESTMENT meaning - OFFSHORE INVESTMENT definition - OFFSHORE INVESTMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Offshore investment is the keeping of money in a jurisdiction other than one's country of residence. Offshore jurisdictions are a commonly accepted means of reducing the taxes levied in most countries to both large and small-scale investors alike. Poorly regulated offshore domiciles have served historically as havens for tax evasion, money laundering, or to conceal or protect illegally acquired money from law enforcement in the investor's country. However, the modern, well-regulated offshore centres allow legitimate investors to take advantage of higher rates of return or lower rates of tax on that return offered by operating via such domiciles. The advantage to offshore investment is that such operations are both legal and less costly than those offered in the investor's country - or "onshore". Locations favored by investors for low rates of tax are known as offshore financial centers or (sometimes) tax havens. Offshore centers are widely used and are accessible to anyone who can meet the minimum investment amount or pay the obligatory fees required to open such an entity. Investopedia indicates that, "More than half of the world's assets and investments are held in offshore jurisdictions and many well-recognized companies have investment opportunities in offshore locales." Payment of less tax is the driving force behind most 'offshore' activity. Due to the use of offshore centers, investors are able to conduct investment activities in a more profitable fashion. Often, taxes levied by an investor's home country are critical to the profitability of any given investment. Using offshore-domiciled special purpose mechanisms (or vehicles) an investor may reduce the amount of tax payable, allowing the investor to achieve greater profitability overall. Another reason why 'offshore' investment is considered superior to 'onshore' investment is because it is less regulated, and the behavior of the offshore investment provider, whether he be a banker, fund manager, trustee or stock-broker, is freer than it could be in a more regulated environment. Offshore investing includes investment strategies outside of an investor's home country. Investment opportunities in money-market, bond and equity assets are available through offshore companies. One may also charter an offshore corporation to provide a legal personality, limited liability, transferable shares, a centralized management, and shared ownership. In some cases the investment advantages of such a corporation are offset by legal, corporate and account registration fees imposed by the country in which the offshore account is established. Further, the officers of the corporation may be required to establish residence, own real estate, or meet an investment minimum (depending upon the country this may range up to $1 million). An advantage which accrues from establishing a corporate structure is that although a citizen may be proscribed from establishing an offshore account, they can establish a corporation that can do so. Motivations for investment offshore include: 1. Tax advantages - tax regulations often contain provisions to protect against taxation by multiple jurisdictions which can be exploited for legal tax reductions. Nations intentionally attract business investments through lower tax rates. The corporate-tax trend over the period from 1980 to 2010 has trended lower, with the top rate in OECD countries (excluding America) moving from 51% to 32%. Investing in such an environment can improve the investor's rate of return on investment. 2. Investment diversification - risk can be managed by diversifying investments among a wider range of options than are available for onshore investment.

A hedge fund is a collective investment scheme, often structured as a limited partnership, that invests private capital speculatively to maximize capital appreciation. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1118239245/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1118239245&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=a9e6a9474bc3d710513e0c3e533661f5 Hedge funds tend to invest in a diverse range of markets, investment instruments, and strategies; today the term "hedge fund" refers more to the structure of the investment vehicle than the investment techniques. Though they are privately owned and operated, hedge funds are subject to the regulatory restrictions of their respective countries. U.S. regulations, for example, limit hedge fund participation to certain classes of investors and also limit the total number of investors allowed in the fund. Hedge funds are often open-ended and allow additions or withdrawals by their investors. A hedge fund's value is calculated as a share of the fund's net asset value, meaning that increases and decreases in the value of the fund's investment assets (and fund expenses) are directly reflected in the amount an investor can later withdraw. Most hedge fund investment strategies aim to achieve a positive return on investment regardless of whether markets are rising or falling ("absolute return"). Hedge fund managers typically invest money of their own in the fund they manage, which serves to align their own interests with those of the investors in the fund. A hedge fund typically pays its investment manager an annual management fee, which is a percentage of the assets of the fund, and a performance fee if the fund's net asset value increases during the year. Some hedge funds have several billion dollars of assets under management (AUM). As of 2009, hedge funds represented 1.1% of the total funds and assets held by financial institutions. As of April 2012, the estimated size of the global hedge fund industry was US$2.13 trillion. Because hedge funds are not sold to the general public or retail investors, the funds and their managers have historically been exempt from some of the regulation that governs other funds and investment managers with regard to how the fund may be structured and how strategies and techniques are employed. Regulations passed in the United States and Europe after the 2008 credit crisis were intended to increase government oversight of hedge funds and eliminate certain regulatory gaps. During the US bull market of the 1920s, there were numerous private investment vehicles available to wealthy investors. Of that period, the best known today, is the Graham-Newman Partnership founded by Benjamin Graham and Jerry Newman which was cited by Warren Buffett, in a 2006 letter to the Museum of American Finance, as an early hedge fund. Financial journalist Alfred W. Jones is credited with coining the phrase "hedged fund" and is erroneously credited with creating the first hedge fund structure in 1949. Jones referred to his fund as being "hedged", a term then commonly used on Wall Street, to describe the management of investment risk due to changes in the financial markets. In 1968 there were almost 200 hedge funds, and the first fund of funds that utilized hedge funds were created in 1969 in Geneva. In the 1970s, hedge funds specialized in a single strategy, and most fund managers followed the long/short equity model. Many hedge funds closed during the recession of 1969--70 and the 1973--1974 stock market crash due to heavy losses. They received renewed attention in the late 1980s. During the 1990s, the number of hedge funds increased significantly, funded with wealth created during the 1990s stock market rise.[9] The increased interest was due to the aligned-interest compensation structure (i.e. common financial interests) and the promise of above high returns. Over the next decade hedge fund strategies expanded to include: credit arbitrage, distressed debt, fixed income, quantitative, and multi-strategy. US institutional investors such as pension and endowment funds began allocating greater portions of their portfolios to hedge funds. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedge_fund

According to the Post, the Cordishes came to Callahan's attention when they were "in the process of setting up four trusts in the Cook Islands through TrustNet and the family eventually placed $116 million worth of assets in them, a transfer they disclosed to the IRS." In the spring of 2006, New York financial planner Brian Callahan and a TrustNet attorney toured the United States with a sales pitch that urged wealthy Americans to invest their money through trusts set up in the Cook Islands. Among the clients that Callahan and the attorney approached was a family that runs a large commercial real estate and casino development company in Baltimore, the Cordish Cos. At the time, the Cordishes were already in the process of creating four trusts in the Cook Islands through TrustNet and the family eventually placed $116 million worth of assets in them, a transfer they disclosed to the IRS. They invested some of the money with Callahan, but instead of protecting their investment, he allegedly swindled the Cordishes out of nearly $12 million, according to previously confidential documents and a civil lawsuit brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission. David Cordish is known for making some very shrewd development bets, but the owner of the Inner Harbor's Power Plant Live! and the Maryland Live! casino appears to have made an investment for which he'd have to give an unfortunate title: Developer Swindled! http://tinyurl.com/bs8hj5v

He explains that the so-called Level 2 guidance of the AIFMD, which will give more detail of the implementation, is still open, and he believes that there will be a transitional phase whereby managers will retain their offshore funds but set up parallel funds in Europe to facilitate distribution. The hotly debated topic of the role of the depository, and depositories will start reorganising themselves after the detail is known. Mr Ferguson outlines the changes which may take place, for example it may set restrictions on prime brokers' collateral requirements, depositories could say that they will only work with certain prime brokers, or some global depositories may only work with their in-house prime broker. AIFMD also imposes strict risk management and conflict of interest procedures, and Mr Ferguson outlines the processes that Luxembourg has already put in place for the specialised investment funds, whereby the funds have to formalise the processes and submit details of the CSSF, the Luxembourg regulators. The impact of this could be the creation of "plug and play" platforms, whereby the infrastructure platform will provide the risk management and the investment manager will focus on investment advisory.

Here are the obvious advantages of investing from offshore: * Geo-diversification -- here, your choices are not located between San Francisco and New York, you actually have a global menu in your hands * Then there's outside located assets protected by Governance from the Government which makes it safe for you and minimizes your risk in growth * Then there's offshore located regulatory fiduciary as a segregated account, not a 3 rd party banking risk for you * And finally, annually, a 3 rd party audit is provided for you. So, when was the last time your bank or broker sent you one of those? As you've seen before, the advantage of investing from Offshore is really about more choice and selection. However, here are more reasons why: * U.S. Funds must distribute their realized gains each year even when you want a Buy and Hold only strategy. * In comparison, offshore funds are a 100% roll-up of the price fund. * Now the benefit is much more distinct when you see that 100% of your realized gains increase the price and therefore making the fund 'zero' in tax for capital gains, income, profits and dividends. So wouldn't you, being a non-USA person and top fund manager want to move your fund offshore? I mean as a non-USA person, what you're seeing here is you're paying zero tax on your fees. And with this difference in choice, you actually have control over invested returns now. INVESTMENTS ONLY AVAILABLE FROM OFFSHORE So here's where I think that when you're thinking of choices, the menu is much more diverse with these 3 additional funds. They have attracted over 23 trillion plus worldwide and can only be accessed from offshore. Note -- these funds are not sold to a USA Account holder. Bottom line is unless you have an offshore account, you can't have any of these types of funds even if you wanted them! The 3 Offshore Investment Types are: * UCITS Funds -- The Financial Times reports these as beating out the U.S. Funds in Asia and Latin America because of investment flexibility and hedge fund type strategies * AIFMD Funds -- These have greater operational flexibility in terms of both choice and structuring and have 16 Trillion invested worldwide * Then there are SIF funds which have over 3 Trillion invested worldwide. Wouldn't you also want to explore what they have available to you? The good news is that when you're investing from offshore there are so much more options.

Over the past decade, their investment approach has generated consistent and above average returns. On 1 February 2016, CoroCapital launched a stand alone hedge fund management company.

The fund has a long/short mandate, predominantly on South African equities, but it can invest across asset classes and also offshore. Since launch in Feb. 2016 until the end of October, the fund is up 6.35%, outperforming the JSE (+3.49%).

Subscribe to this channel: http://www.youtube.com/OpalesqueTV Volvar Asset Management (Volvar AM) is a Paris-based independent asset management company specialized on the volatility asset class. Their first fund is seeded by IMQubator, the seeding fund to which Dutch pensions giant APG has committed €250mln in 2009. Volvar AM will shortly launch the innovative, long/short Volvar Eurozone Volatility Fund which aims at both absolute return and anti-correlation. It is one of the first systematic funds within an emerging asset class. Although fully systematic, the portfolio management process is centered on ex-ante qualitative objectives. The fund combines protection strategies (directed to exploit the negative beta of the asset class) with return strategies (based on being carry positive to monetise the asset class risk premium). Adaptative portfolio risk control aims at performance preservation should volatility collapse. By focusing purely on volatility, the fund avoids contingent risks that can haunt other volatility funds. In addition, the fund does not apply directional exposure, nor leverage. This Opalesque.TV BACKSTAGE feature of Nadejda Rakovska, partner at Volvar AM, is a succinct example of IMQubator's principle to "look for people who have a passion and a drive for their business, and for whom setting up their own firm is a logical step in their total career development for which they basically have been preparing over many years." (Jeroen Tielman, CEO and Founder of IMQ Investment Management in an Opalesque.TV portrait accessible here: http://www.opalesque.tv/hedge-fund-videos/Jeroen_Tielman/1). While Volvar' AMs fund is new, the model is proven since 2006, a first version being created and implemented within a Lehman Brothers AM offshore fund as a systematic volatility strategy aiming at absolute return and anti-correlation with equities. Lehman Brothers' issues caused a premature interruption at that time. Since 2011, Volvar AM is authorized and regulated by the AMF, the French Security and Exchange Authority. The Volvar Eurozone Volatility Fund's capacity could eventually grow to EUR 1 billion. Nadejda Rakovska is a senior portfolio manager with 10 years experience in the industry. Former equity derivatives trader, she started at Commerzbank NY in 2001 before joining Lehman Brothers Investment Management Division in 2005 to set up their European volatility portfolio management. At the creation of the European quant group for Lehman Brothers she participated in all aspects of the launch of that business unit. Together with Yves Coignard (Volvar AM's CIO), she developed and implemented systematic equity and volatility strategies, among which the first generation of the Eurostoxx volatility strategy presented here. Nadejda holds a business degree from ESCP Europe and a MSc in Economics and Statistics from ENSAE. She can be reached at nadejda.rakovska@volvarasset.com. Nadejda's partner Yves Coignard participated at the Opalesque 2012 France Roundtable. the transcript can be downloaded here: http://www.opalesque.com/RT/RoundtableFrance2012.html
