Alternative investment funds in Cyprus

It is a cooperative investment asset formed to obtain outside cash from a group of stakeholders and invest the finances in those investors’ favour under a specified economic system. The legislation allows for two different sorts of AIFs:

  • AIF-Limited Number of People,
  • AIF-Unlimited Number of People.

The AIF Act, which aims to update local ordinances under European Directives, especially concerning shareholder defence and openness, serves as the legal foundation for controlling the related interactions. Cyprus gained more appeal from overseas companies after the Act that was published in 2014. Now it offers a wide range of legal regimes for all forms of funds. Also passed was the AIF Act of 2018. Due to it, businesses may find the formation of a Registered AIF to be extremely alluring:

  • It does not demand any capital base;
  • It may be close- or open-ended;
  • It requires the installation of a local repository, has a limitless amount of investors, and is only obtainable to knowledgeable and/or experienced investors.


It is exempt from any limitations such as capital-related laws. It is free for investing in all kinds of property. Only shareholders who have the understanding, skill, and competence to make their financial judgments and who can correctly estimate possible problems have access to them. Additionally, they must make an AIF asset of at least 125,000 euros or complete an evaluation by an official entity proving that they are a knowledgeable investor with the necessary degree of learning and experience.

AIF-LNPs commonly have cheap registering and operating fees. The designation of a funds manager, a bookkeeper, a depository, and a financing admin is crucial for the work of the AIF-LNP.


It has to obtain at least 125,000 or 300,000 euros in capital if it is founded as a self-guided equity firm, and may be limited to reduce riskiness. Any sort of investor such as professionals, knowledgeable and ordinary ones, may be targeted with this style of AIF marketing.
