Alternative Investment Firms (AIFs) & Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFMs)

An Alternative Investment Fund (AIF) is an onshore Cyprus and European regulated investment fund that operates for the sole purpose of the collective management of its portfolio by investing in any predefined asset class and/or other liquid/illiquid instruments to the interest of its shareholders. Depending on the size of the portfolio, the number and type of investors, and the investment strategy, AIFs are classified as follows:

  • AIF with a limited number of investors (AIFLNP)
  • AIF with an unlimited number of investors (AIF)
  • Registered AIF (RAIF)

Each AIF (Alternative Investment Fund) is managed by a single AIFM, which shall be responsible for ensuring compliance with the AIFM Law. There are two types of managers in Cyprus:

  • Authorized AIFM
  • Mini-Managers

From risk management to regulatory reporting and compliance paperwork, there has been increasing pressure for AIFs and AIFMs to obtain their license and manage their operations.
