Our funds advisory team of experts and associates have deep and broad experience in the legal, tax and regulatory aspects of establishment and maintenance of collective investment vehicles, particularly Alternative Investment Funds.
We stand by our clients from the preliminary steps of structuring their fund through the Cyprus Securities & Exchange Commission (CySEC), selecting its governance bodies, and throughout its lifecycle.
Through our wide network of professionals we can assist with outsourcing all requisite operations including, administration, management, depository and compliance services as well as accounting, legal and tax.
The flexible Cyprus legal and regulatory framework have offered Cyprus another advantage in terms of the establishment and maintenance of AIFs, under the supervision of the CySEC.
The Cyprus AIF regime offers the opportunity to register an AIF in a cost efficient and effective manner. For instance, AIFs which are externally managed by an Alternative Investment Fund Manager established in an EU member state do not require authorisation from CySEC.
A Cyprus AIF can also benefit from Cyprus competitive tax advantages, provided the fund does not hold directly or indirectly immovable property situated in Cyprus]
AIFs can have variable legal forms and features, subject of course to minimum requirements and intentions of investors.
Please do not hesitate to contact our funds advisory team for any further information in relation to legal, regulatory and tax aspects of setting up collective investment vehicles in Cyprus.
