The AIFMD (Directive) brought with it the definition of Alternative Investment Funds (AIF). The Directive set out various requirements that had to be met including the contents of the Prospectus and reporting requirements to investors and the regulatory authorities who have been burdened with the industry’s oversight. National authorities like the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) introduced National Law and Directives for the licensing and operation of AIF.
Our specialists team has since undertaken the authorization process for several AIFs of varying investment strategies with perfect record. Having been part of the fund industry well before the introduction of the AIF, our specialist members understand the needs, speak a common language with market participants and can go beyond completing and filing an application to advise on structure, terms, potential pitfalls to avoid, and more.
