Cyprus Investment Funds Distribution Committee

Terms of reference

One of CIFA’s main objectives is to establish Cyprus as a fund distribution platform to markets (CIS, Gulf/MENA) that are untapped by mature fund distribution centres. The scope of the Committee will be to propose to CIFA BoD and assist in implementing a strategy to achieve this goal. In particular the Committee is expected to:

•    Propose strategic options targeted and actions to showcase Cyprus advantages as a Fund Distribution Center.
•    Enter into communication and consultations with agencies from CIS, Gulf/MENA economies, in order to ensure the cross-border distribution of Cyprus UCITS and AIFs and encourage the establishment of such vehicles in Cyprus.
•    Formulate the content of the CIFA Website, including that to be addressed to targeted non-EU markets, containing information on Cyprus Investment Funds and on the set-up of UCITS management companies or of AIFM Companies in Cyprus.
•    Prepare the CIFA Newsletter providing information on the overall funds industry and the related Cyprus market developments.

The above list is non-exhaustive and other related issues may also be analysed and dealt with by the Committee as appropriate.
