What is a Protected Cell Company (PCC)?
PCCs are governed by the Protected Cell Companies Act 1999. The unique feature of PCCs are they allow for the creation of several cells under a single entity whilst also segregating the assets and liabilities of each cell in such manner so as to protect cells from the threat of failure of another cell. PCCs are an ideal framework for promoters investment entity who want to have several investment portfolios, where each has its own investment scheme and risk profile. This kind of framework is even more appealing where investors are not common in each portfolio. The investment also feels more secured this way. In a nutshell, the key benefit of a PCC is that each cell’s liability does not impact any other cell of the PCC entity.
