Why Choose Cyprus

Why Cyprus

The island of the Republic of Cyprus is an EU member state, located north-east of the Mediterranean Sea and is one of the region’s leading business centres while it enjoys the advantages of tourism, consultancy, shipping, banking, and insurance markets. The official languages of the island are Greek and English.

Cyprus is a uniquely competitive entry point to EU regulated fund management solutions and one of the most attractive EU jurisdictions for investments. It is a well-regulated EU member state with full alignment of the EU Directives into the national legislation which in turn regulates entities such as investment firms, investment funds and investment fund managers.

This regulatory environment, combined with Cyprus’s geographical location at the crossroad of three continents, is attracting investment fund promoters and specialist service providers from various parts of the world, offering unique investment opportunities and specialized expertise
