Private Funds Act Compliance
The Private Funds Act 2020 (“PF Act”) creates a regulatory regime for closed-end funds, such as private equity, venture capital, and private debt funds.
What are the Requirements of the Private Funds Act 2020?
Many of the requirements under the Cayman Private Funds law are similar to the existing requirements for open-ended funds, but there are some additional operational features contained in the PF Act which managers also need to address.
All private funds, whether formed before or after the passage of the PF Act, must register with the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (“CIMA”).
