Cayman Islands’ Auditor Information

The Mutual Funds Law (2015 Revision) governs the regulations and requirements for certain funds which are established or incorporated within the Cayman Islands and registered with the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA). CIMA requires all regulated mutual funds (which includes hedge funds) to have their accounts audited annually by an auditor approved by CIMA. Cohen & Company (Cayman) is an approved auditor by CIMA.

British Virgin Islands Information

Regulated entities which are governed by the BVI Financial Services Commission (FSC) includes hedge funds which may be licensed as either public funds, private funds or professional funds with BVI FSC. All private and professional funds (unless the fund meets certain FSC exemptions) are required to appoint an auditor and complete an annual audit of their financial statements which shall be filed with the FSC within six months of the funds year-end. In addition, an auditor of a private and/or professional fund is not required to be approved by the FSC. In the case of licensees and public funds, the proposed auditor must be an auditor approved by FSC. Accordingly, most hedge funds licensed with the FSC are typically private or professional funds which may be audited by Cohen & Company.
