Alternative Investment Funds UCITS

Alternative Investment Funds UCITS

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.
