The Mutual Funds Law (for open-ended funds) and the Private Funds Law (for closed-ended funds) are the two main statutes relevant to the regulation of investment funds in the Cayman Islands.. Changes to the Mutual Funds Law means that certain mutual funds, which were previously exempted from registration with CIMA because they had 15 investors or less, the majority of whom have the power to appoint and/or remove the operators of the investment fund (the operator being the directors, the general partner or the trustee, as is relevant given the corporate structure used for the fund) (Limited Investor Funds), are no longer exempt from registration with CIMA.. Limited Investor Funds are now required to be registered with, and are regulated by, CIMA.. There is currently no requirement for registration of directors with CIMA under the DRLL who are directors of closed-ended funds that fall within the scope of the Private Funds Law.. Valuations of the assets of a private fund are required to be carried out at a frequency that is appropriate to the assets held by the private fund and, in any case, on at least an annual basis.. A private fund that regularly trades securities or holds them on a consistent basis must maintain a record of the identification codes of the securities that it trades and holds and make this available to CIMA upon request.
The Mutual Funds Law (for open-ended funds) and the Private Funds Law (for closed-ended funds) are the two main statutes relevant to the regulation of investment funds in the Cayman Islands.. The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA) is the regulatory body responsible for compliance with these laws and related regulations and has broad powers of enforcement.The Mutual Funds Law defines a mutual fund as “a company, unit trust or partnership that issues equity interests, the purpose or effect of which is the pooling of investor funds with the aim of spreading investment risks and enabling investors in the mutual fund to receive profits or gains from the acquisition, holding, management or disposal of investments …” The reference to “equity interests” means that debt instruments (including warrants, convertibles and sukuk instruments) are excluded and funds issuing such instruments will not be required to register with CIMA as a mutual fund.. Changes to the Mutual Funds Law means that certain mutual funds, which were previously exempted from registration with CIMA because they had 15 investors or less, the majority of whom have the power to appoint and/or remove the operators of the investment fund (the operator being the directors, the general partner or the trustee, as is relevant given the corporate structure used for the fund) (Limited Investor Funds), are no longer exempt from registration with CIMA.. Audit Requirement: Each CIMA registered mutual fund is required to have its accounts audited annually by a firm of auditors on the CIMA approved list of auditors and file such audited accounts with CIMA within six months of the end of each financial year of the mutual fund (along with an Financial Annual Return in CIMA's prescribed form).. Single Investor Fund: Mutual funds that are established for a sole investor and do not involve the pooling of investor funds fall outside the regulatory framework of the Mutual Funds Law.. Registration of Directors: Directors of mutual funds structured as exempted companies, managers of investment funds structured as LLCs and directors of general partners of investment funds structured as an exempted limited partnership (in each case, wherever in the world these persons are located, not just to Cayman Islands-based directors) regulated by CIMA are required to register with CIMA under the Directors Registration and Licensing Law (DRLL).. The Private Funds Law requires the registration of closed-ended funds (typically, investment funds that do not grant investors with a right or entitlement to withdraw or redeem their shares or interests from the fund upon notice) with CIMA.. The Private Funds Law applies to private equity funds, real estate funds, and other types of closed-ended funds set up as Cayman Islands limited partnerships, companies (including SPCs), unit trusts and limited liability companies.. Each private fund is required to have its accounts audited annually by a firm of auditors on the CIMA approved list of auditors and file such audited accounts with CIMA within six months of the end of each financial year of the private fund (along with a financial annual return in CIMA's prescribed form).. The Private Funds Law requires a custodian: (1) to hold the private fund’s assets that are capable of physical delivery or capable of registration in a custodial account except where that is neither practical nor proportionate given the nature of the private fund and the type of assets held; and (2) to verify title to, and maintain records of, fund assets.. The Private Funds Law requires a private fund to appoint an administrator, custodian or another independent third party (or the manager or operator of the private fund):
