Galadari Advises on DIFC Domiciled Multi-Asset Class Qualified Investor Fund  


Dubai, UAE, 17 April 2017– Galadari Advocates & Legal Consultants (DIFC) Limited recently advised on the set up of a Multi-Asset Class Qualified Investor Fund of US$200 Million (the “Fund”). The Fund is one of the first such funds to have been set up since the Qualified Investor Funds Regime has emerged in the Dubai International Financial Centre (“DIFC”).

Galadari’s team advised on the establishment of the Fund, in addition to obtaining the necessary clearance from the Dubai Financial Services Authority (“DFSA”). As a domestic fund in the DIFC, subscriptions would be made by professional investors both within the DIFC and internationally. The Fund will invest in infrastructure, real estate and alternative investments.

The Qualified Investor Funds Regime was introduced by the DFSA as a consequence of an ever increasing fund sponsor interest in establishment of funds within the DIFC requiring minimal regulation. Such framework, now in place, allows for a swift approval process and nominal fees for establishment and ongoing operations for fund vehicles.
