Offshore Fund Definition

Below please find a definition of “Offshore Fund”

Financial Analysis Training & Glossary TermsOffshore Fund: An investment vehicle that is domiciled outside the U.S. and has no limit on the number of non-U.S. investors it can take on. Although the fund’s securities transactions occur on U.S. exchanges and are executed by a U.S. manager, or general partner, its administration and audits are conducted offshore — usually in a tax haven like the Cayman Islands. Because it is administered outside the U.S., non-U.S. investors and such U.S. investors as pension funds and other tax-exempt entities aren’t subject to U.S. taxes. Definition Source: Hedgeco
