  • The enactment of the Alternative Investment Funds Law of 2014 (“AIF Law”) marked the beginning of a new era and strong opportunities for Cyprus in the fund industry. The new AIF Law came to harmonise the Cyprus legal framework with the European legislation in an attempt to enhance its competiveness and place the country as an important player in the field of alternative investment funds. The new AIF Law provides for the requirements for the establishment of alternative investments funds (“AIFs”), their operation and supervision as well as setting the framework for the key persons involved in the management and operations of such funds.
