Receivers can be Appointed over Segregated Portfolios

A recent case in the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands affirmed that a receiver can now be appointed over segregated portfolios.

In a recent case in the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands it was affirmed  that where one segregated portfolio of a segregated portfolio company is in financial distress but the other segregated portfolios remain unaffected, the Cayman Islands Companies Act (2022 Revision) provides for the appointment of a receiver to the relevant portfolio, without needing to wind up the whole company.

Before a receiver can be appointed over a segregated portfolio, it must be shown that the relevant segregated portfolio is "insolvent" within the meaning of 224(1) of the Companies Act.
