Further to the Alternative Investment Funds (AIF) Law of 2014, and the Alternative Investment Funds Managers Directive of 2011, Cyprus became one of the most cost-effective and advantageous jurisdictions for the establishment of investment funds, offering great opportunities for fund managers to structure and grow their business in Europe and beyond. This has increased the demand for the registration of said funds in Cyprus, making the jurisdiction one of the stronger hubs for Funds in the region. Furthermore, companies that cater towards the ever expanding Fund sector need to pay special attention to the relevant Taxation issues and considerations, as it is easy to fail to do so without the relevant knowledge of the relevant taxation regime.
UCITS is a regulatory framework of the European Commission that creates a harmonized regime throughout Europe for the management and sale of mutual funds and they can be traced back to EU Directive of 20 December, 1985, the objective of which was to create a single European market for retail investment funds, while at the same time ensuring a high level of investor protection. UCITS funds can be registered in Europe and sold to investors worldwide using unified regulatory and investor protection requirements.
