Registration of investment fund.
Do you need to open an investment fund?
First of all, opening of an investment fund will be interesting for professional financiers. The investment fund will allow the management of third party funds or work with borrowed funds.
In addition, the opening of an investment fund is an excellent opportunity to collect investment in a particular project or start-up, which requires a large number of funds for implementation.
Investment funds can be registered in different jurisdictions, but most often they are registered in offshore. Even offshore funds are well regulated and provide reliable protection to investors.
Where is it better to open an investment fund?
Opening of an investment fund is a very responsible step, and the choice of the country should be approached accordingly. When choosing a country, you need to consider a variety of factors, such as fund activities, marketing strategy, project budget, planned size of subscriptions or type of investors.
Extremely popular is the registration of investment funds in offshore. Offshore investment funds may not pay taxes and are less regulated than, for example, European funds. In particular, in the Caymans, an investment offshore closed-end fund is not a subject to regulation at all.
But the opening of an investment fund is not always caused exclusively by the taxation factor. If your potential customers are located in the EU and you want to conduct an active marketing campaign there, then the most appropriate solution will be a European fund.
In some structures (for example, “master feeder”), registration of two or more investment funds may be required. In such cases, it is possible to use an investment offshore fund as one of the funds within the structure.
An investment offshore fund will also be the right choice if you need a quick entry to the market, since the time required to open an investment fund in offshore jurisdictions is substantially less.
If you register an investment offshore fund – which type of fund should you choose?
Most of the world’s investment funds are offshore. Among the most popular jurisdictions for opening funds are Caymans, Bahamas and BVI (British Virgin Islands). The types of funds in each of these countries differ, each country striving to offer the best conditions for business.
For example, the Bahamas will be an excellent choice for the registration of private offshore funds and investment offshore funds designed for professional (qualified) investors.
