When setting up your optimal investment fund, choose a team that’s fully invested in you. We work closely with you to select flexible and robust investment vehicles tailored to your individual investment objectives.

Our resourceful team keeps on top of ever-changing regulation to meet the demands of diverse clients, including asset managers, investment managers, investors, custodians, promoters and other firms/agents providing funds services.

We can assist you in every aspect relating to the establishment of unregulated and regulated funds, and in the preparation of offering documents and ancillary service agreements for private equity funds.

Professional Funds

As the name suggests, these funds are an attractive investment option for professional investors. They may be licensed directly by the Securities Commission of The Bahamas or an authorised administrator to speed up the process. We help accredited or high net worth investors to fast track applications for professional funds and launch in a significantly reduced space of time.


This category of fund offers a series of uniquely Bahamian investment fund structures to clients looking to take advantage of a sophisticated investment platform. The SMART fund is a specific mandate alternative regulatory test fund that may be licensed under one of seven different SMART fund templates. The fund provides sophisticated investors with an opportunity to create innovative structuring solutions to financial challenges, and structure their investment goals in a regulated environment. 

Standard Funds

These are strictly regulated investment funds which do not meet the requirements of a professional fund, a SMART fund or a recognised foreign fund.  Standard funds anticipate a public offering and are designed to operate as a traditional collective investment scheme.  

Recognised Foreign Funds

These investment funds are registered in prescribed jurisdictions and are not suspended from operation, thereby enabling the fund to sell its equity interests from or within The Bahamas.  While the equity interests of recognised foreign funds are listed on a prescribed securities exchange, they are not listed in The Bahamas. 

Establishment and Operation of Investment Fund Administrators

We help clients to obtain licenses to establish and operate investment funds, including investment fund administrator licenses, and advise them on the legislative requirements for physical presence and ongoing reporting obligations.
