Investment Firm

Investment Firms (IF) are becoming heavily regulated with the introduction and implementation of the Markets for Financial Instruments Directive II. Credit Institutions and Payment Processors no longer appear willing to accept investment firms that are either unregulated or “lightly” regulated in offshore jurisdictions. Our team can help you get the license you need from reputable EU jurisdictions, and assist you to seamlessly transition your existing, or efficiently set up new, operations at the head office state of choice.

Alternative Investment Fund Manager

The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) was the culmination of the European Commission’s effort to shore up the unregulated Alternative Investment Fund (AIF) industry and eliminate such oversight gaps that could potentially wreak havoc in the investment industry and overall economy. We have been in the forefront of this new regulatory segment, handling licensing applications from its infancy with unparalleled success. Our principals’ industry expertise has been paramount in assisting our clients achieve their aim of establishing a regulated Alternative Investment Fund Manager (AIFM) in the EU.

Alternative Investment Fund

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.
