Cyprus’ ambition to enhance its International business center status with the capture of a bigger piece of the lucrative fund management business has led to a substantial amendment of its legislative and regulatory framework to accommodate the demands of fund managers, the investors, and most importantly the European Union and International trends in regulation and compliance. This has given rise to the Alternative Investment Fund law of 2018 and, subsequently, to a significant growth of the fund market in Cyprus, both in terms of value of assets and in terms of number of Investment Funds. This seminar aims at giving a practical, inner sight of the available fund structures in Cyprus, their core regulatory/compliance reporting obligations to CySEC, addressing also the newly established framework of crowdfunding.
By the end of the seminar the participants will be able to:
- Understand the structure and the key features of AIFs, AIFLNPs, RAIFs, Fund Managers, including Mini Managers.
- Become familiar with the core regulatory/compliance reporting obligations of Investment Funds to the Regulator.
- Understand the concept of investment-based crowdfunding, which is a new regulated funding option entrusted to CIFs
The seminar is addressed primarily to all interested professionals wishing to be informed and trained on a pure practical basis about the regulatory, compliance, reporting and other obligations of fund administrators in Cyprus.
