First unit trust move from Cayman to Ireland completed

Dillon Eustace has announced what it claims to be the first ever unit trust relocation from the Cayman Islands to Ireland.

The re-domiciling has involved a Cayman Islands registered unit trust successfully relocating as an Irish Qualifying Investor Fund. Dillon Eustace expects more fund relocations shortly. (article continues below)

It follows the Irish Central Bank’s agreement to facilitate the general relocation of unit trusts.

Legislation was recently commenced to streamline the process of re-domiciling of corporate funds to Ireland.
