A new regulatory regime for closed-end funds has been implemented in the British Virgin Islands (the “BVI”). The BVI government introduced the Securities and Investment Business (Amendment) Act, 2019 (“SIBA Amendment”) accompanied with the Private Investment Funds Regulations, 2019 (“PIF Regulations”), which introduces a new category of fund requiring regulation, being a ‘private investment fund’. Until now closed-end funds were unregulated.
