BVI Incubator Fund Characteristics

  • SPVs via BVI incubator funds are designed for emerging managers and startups, offering a streamlined setup with minimal regulatory obligations. They do not require mandatory functionaries like auditors, administrators, or investment managers, making them ideal for developing investment strategies over time​​.

  • Operational Period: These funds can operate for up to two years, extendable by one year. They must transition to a Private, Approved, or Professional Fund or wind up operations​​if viable.

  • Director Requirements: At least two directors are needed, one being an individual and the other an individual or a corporate entity. Their resumes must be submitted to the BVI Commission for approval​​.

  • Documentation and Compliance: Necessary documents include the fund's constitutional documents, written warnings to investors, a description of the investment strategy, and potentially an offering document. Annual financial statements and semi-annual returns regarding eligibility must be submitted. The fund must comply with various regulatory requirements, including CRS Reporting and FATCA​​.
