Disruptive Capital has chosen Guernsey for its latest fund launch – the Secondary Disruptive Fund – with Ogier’s Guernsey investment funds team advising on the local aspects of its establishment and close.

The closed-ended collective investment scheme successfully closed at its targeted total commitments.

Disruptive Capital was founded by Edmund Truell, a former chairman of the British Venture Capital Association. It sources and manages opportunistic investments and combines an eclectic mix of senior industry experience with private equity pedigree.

Ogier Partner Bryon Rees said: “We are pleased to continue to support Disruptive Capital, having done so for a number of years. Achieving their targeted fund size is a testament to the standing of Disruptive.”

Mr Rees and associate Michelle Watson Bunn led the Ogier team in Guernsey, and worked with lead counsel Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.

Last month, Mr Rees and Ms Watson Bunn led the Ogier team that advised Disruptive on its acquisition of a majority stake in REG (UK) Limited, the leading online counterparty risk management platform for the general insurance market.
