Event Details


The programme aims to deliver an overview of the AIF legislation and is aimed at professionals working in any type of AIF. The course provides an overview of how the legislation should be interpreted and implemented in practice by funds operating in Cyprus. The course will elaborate issues such as the difference between light and full AIFMD regimes, as well as units, redemptions, special provisions, and disclosures. On the first section of the course, the first two parts of the legislation are studied, where the most generic regulations which define the AIF characteristics are elaborated, including VCIC and FCIC and Limited Liability Partnerships. In addition, the remaining parts of the law are studied, with emphasis on the compliance of the AIF with the law and the supervision of AIFs. A special mention to AIF marketing is also done.
