Fund Management in the DIFC

Over the last decade, there have been a lot of changes to Dubai International Financial Centre’s (DIFC) fund regime. DIFC is providing a highly secure and supportive environment for local, regional and global players to domicile, manage and distribute funds.

It is well positioned in the international fund markets and continues to be the leader in the region’s largest fund management jurisdiction.

Dubai is a global financial city, safe and stable socially, politically and economically with business, trade and tourism centers and is well connected to all regional and global markets.

Both financial institutions and HNIs are feeling an urgent need for competent and expert fund managers in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region for addressing their complex investment requirements.

An investment fund provides a greater selection of investment opportunities, better management expertise, and lower investment fees than investors can get on their own. Fund management is one of the four areas of investment management while the other three are wealth management, asset management and private equity.

Why Setup an Investment Fund in the DIFC

DIFC is the leading financial centre and has a world class infrastructure for both professional and personal needs.

With DIFC funds, fund managers can have access to the GCC market and the bigger MEASA region and can avail tax advantage against any foreign source of income due double taxation treaties with that foreign country that UAE enjoys. Nil taxation on personal and corporate income is also hugely advantageous and attracts investment funding.
