In the last few years, Cyprus has grown to be one of the fastest emerging fund markets in Europe. The passing of the Alternative Investment Fund Law of 2014 and the transposition of the UCITS IV Directive into domestic Law in 2012 have harmonized the local regulatory framework in line with the EU fund regulations, increasing the country’s competitive position and opening the market for the set up of Cyprus funds which can be marketed domestically and in the EU. With a market now built on strong legal foundations, the business environment is created for fund managers, custodians, and administrators to operate and with their significant contribution the Cyprus fund market shall continue developing.
Participants to this seminar will be given the opportunity to gain an overview and understanding of the Cyprus Fund Sector from a legal and operational perspective. The various legal provisions will be analysed and their practical application illustrated.
Who should attend
Investment Funds Professionals, Fund Administrators, Fund Custodians, Legal Professionals that deal with Funds, Compliance Officers, Investment Advisors, Portfolio Managers, Risk Managers, Accountants, Fiduciary Service Providers and other Professionals who wish to gain an insight into Cyprus Funds Law and the Cyprus Funds Industry.
