Further to the enactment of the Open-Ended Undertakings for Collective Investment (UCI) Law of 2012, 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.
