What to expect from us

Alternative Investment Funds (including RAIFs) are designed for well-informed and professional investors, including high-net-worth individuals, and institutional investors. These funds provide investors with the flexibility to invest in a wide range of assets, including venture capital, private equity, real estate, infrastructure, listed equities and more. RAIFs are directly managed by a regulated and supervised Alternative Investment Fund Manager, not requiring further prior authorisations from regulators before launch that simplify organizational process and may significantly reduce time to market. 
Our independent fund division and subsidiaries provide solutions for AIFs based in Cyprus and Luxembourg. 
By leveraging our expertise and capabilities within the KENDRIS group, we help you establish and manage your own AIF that is tailored to your specific investment goals and risk tolerance, while also providing you with access to a wide range of additional benefits, including governance, reporting, tax and fiduciary solutions.

Benefits and Services at a glance

Family offices can benefit from RAIFs as they provide an efficient means of pooling family assets. By establishing a RAIF, family offices can consolidate their assets into a single investment vehicle, which can help to streamline their investment management process and reduce costs.

Entrepreneurs can also benefit from RAIFs as they offer a means of accessing investor capital. By pooling capital from multiple investors, entrepreneurs can access a larger pool of funding and add trust by putting a widely accepted regulated investment vehicle in place.

(U)HNWI clients and their families who are looking to manage and pool their private wealth benefit from a high degree of flexibility in terms of investment strategy and asset allocation. Furthermore, it can be put into place within a succession planning structure by combining, e.g. trusts or foundation and funds.

The key benefits of an Alternative Investment Fund compared to Offshore Holding Company are as follows: 

  • OECD/FATF/EU compliant regulation and substance
  • Certain range of the tax benefits, while being a fully regulated EU investment vehicle (not a "shell" or "look-through")
  • Exemption from ATAD 3 (un-shelling directive), reducing regulatory burdens
