Financial Services Law
The Financial Services Practice Group relies on the strength and experience of its team members who have strong academic credentials and experience in the field of financial services. The group regularly advises financial institutions as well as institutional and individual clients on related questions.
We provide assistance on and handle licensing applications to the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘Regulator’) related to Cyprus Investment Firms (CIFs), Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs)(both for experienced investors and retail) and Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS). We offer a comprehensive package of services vis-à-vis the licensing procedure, undertaking the completion of all the forms to be submitted to the regulator, liaise with the regulator as and when necessary and prepare drafts of any requisite documents (such as offering memoranda, internal business procedures manual, AML manual, custody and administration agreements, service provider agreements, etc.). Moreover, we undertake training and support for asset managers and investment funds.
