Cypriot Investment Firms (CIFs)

A Cyprus Investment Firm (CIF) is licensed and supervised by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) regarding the provision of investment services, the exercise of investment activities, and the operation of regulated markets.

The ever-changing regulatory landscape, the stringent regulations, and the highly sophisticated infrastructure propound a challenge for CIFs to obtain and manage their license. A lack of understanding of the policies and procedures can lead to mismanagement and consequently regulation breaches, penalties, and even litigation.
