Closed 2 Sep 2020

Opened 7 Jul 2020



The Commission seeks to regulate and supervise financial services in the Bailiwick of Guernsey, with integrity, proportionality and professional excellence, and in so doing help to uphold the international reputation of the Bailiwick of Guernsey as a finance centre.

The purpose of this Discussion Paper is to seek feedback from all interested parties on potential changes to the regulatory framework under the Protection of Investors (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 1987 (the “PoI Law”).

Consistent with the Commission’s objectives, the proposals in this Discussion Paper aim to ensure that the Guernsey funds framework remains fit for purpose including: broadening the options available for certain categories of fund formation; introducing efficiencies in the current framework and seeking to clarify current areas of uncertainty. These changes will ensure that investors and the reputation of the Bailiwick continue to be protected while also helping to create opportunities for further growth.

Responses to this Discussion Paper will be considered by the Commission with a view to making more detailed policy proposals in the form of a Consultation Paper to be issued later in the year.

This Discussion Paper is a working document and does not prejudge any final decision to be made by the Commission.
