Investment funds specialist Matt McManus joins Ogier in Jersey


20 December 2021


Investment funds and regulatory specialist Matt McManus has joined Ogier's Investment Funds team in Jersey as managing associate.

With more than 15 years' experience in the Jersey funds industry, including over a decade within another leading law firm, Matt has worked on some of the largest European private equity fund closings as well as first-time fund launches for new sponsors. He has managed numerous complex transactions, often requiring innovative solutions.

Matt has joined Ogier's multi-disciplinary Private Equity team and has a particular interest in ESG and sustainable investment, and is member of the inaugural #BuildBackBetter cohort, an initiative for the development of sustainable finance leaders in Jersey.

"I'm proud to be at Ogier. The team has an excellent reputation, and is clearly very strong, and I look forward to helping build on this in the years to come.

"Jersey remains an excellent gateway for investment by a global investor base, so it's no surprise that we are seeing new funds launched by established and new sponsors alike, from all parts of the world," said Matt.

"Throughout my career, the pace of change – regulatory, legislative and commercial – has been a constant. Jersey has remained a foremost funds domicile throughout this, offering stability but also agility in the face of global change. I expect 2022 to be no different, and look forward to offering fast-paced advice to help clients navigate this."

Ogier's head of Investment Funds in Jersey, Niamh Lalor, said: "Matt brings a pragmatic and practical approach to his advice. He understands the needs of sponsors and service providers alike and uses this insight to achieve the best outcomes for clients. We're really excited to have him on the team, especially as 2022 looks set to be another busy year for the industry."
