Cyprus: An emerging Investment Fund Centre in Europe

Cyprus is fast becoming one of the top emerging investment fund centres in Europe, offering unique access to high-growth markets. Determined to stay at the forefront of industry developments and continuously upgrading its legislative and regulatory regime, Cyprus has developed into a key regional domicile for setting up investment funds and establishing asset management companies for pan-European reach.

The growth of the investment fund sector is founded on the social and political stability of Cyprus and on a pragmatic legal and regulatory environment that is continuously evolving.

The Cyprus Economy

Cyprus has long established itself as a thriving business hub. While the economy of the country is small, it has proven resilient over the years. Through continuous structural reforms and targeted incentives, Cyprus boosts competitiveness and attracts foreign investments.

The island is an ideal investment gateway to the European Union and a portal for investment outside the EU, particularly into the Middle East, India, and China. As a member of the wider EU and Eurozone community, Cyprus ensures investors’ safety and stability while also offering them market access to more than 500 million EU citizens.

Human talent constitutes Cyprus’ most compelling advantage, complemented by a broad range of high-quality professional services. As a dynamic business centre, Cyprus offers an abundance of highly educated and skilled individuals, multilingual in their majority, ready to serve any business’s needs.

The country’s competitive advantages are significantly enriched by a robust and transparent legal and regulatory framework and an attractive tax regime, which offers a wide range of incentives and benefits both for legal and natural persons.
