Negative real yields across fixed income assets and volatility in equity markets have spurred broad investor interest and allocation in alternatives, such as hedge funds. Private banks and family offices appear most bullish across most hedge fund strategies, and are planning to increase allocations. But what are the pitfalls? After the Archegos fallout especially what are the implications of family offices morphing into hedge funds?

For long, Luxembourg, the Cayman Islands, Jersey, Guernsey, Ireland, etc have maintained their positions as dominant offshore centres by advisers to Middle East’s private banking clients and family offices seeking wealth management and succession solutions outside the region. However, the recent tightening of global tax regulations has changed the way offshore funds choose a jurisdiction and handle client mandates. With legal and regulatory updates being introduced including changes to the anti-money laundering regime, how will this impact the investment outflow to these offshore destinations from Middle East clients?
