Collective Investment Schemes

The Malta Investment Services Act considers collective investment schemes as vehicles for the collective investment of capital acquired by means of an offer of units for subscription, sale or exchange. In Malta, such collective investment schemes may be set up as SICAV investment companies, as an investment company with fixed share capital, as a Contractual Fund, a Limited Partnership, an Incorporated Cell Company or as a Unit Trust. The nature, structure and operation of each fund will depend on the purpose and objectives of that specific fund.

In Malta, Collective Investment Schemes are monitored by the Malta Financial Services Authority which, besides having the responsibility for the licensing process, is also responsible for the regulation and ongoing supervision of Collective Investment Schemes. 

NOUV can assist you to set up your Collective Investment Scheme either as open-ended UCITS Schemes licenced in accordance with the provisions of the Investment Services Act and within a framework that benefits from passporting rights within the EU which allows them to be marketed in other EU or EEA Member States, or as Alternative Investment Funds including non-UCITS Retail Schemes and Professional Investor Funds (PIFs).
