Investment Services Act (Recognition of Private Collective Investment Schemes) Regulations
A collective investment scheme, limiting the total number of participants to 15 persons, does not require a licence to operate. A request to the MFSA (Malta Financial Services Authority) to recognise such collective investment scheme as a private collective scheme is to be made. The MFSA will recognise the said collective investment scheme as a private collective investment scheme if it is satisfied that:
- The participants are close friends or relatives of the promoters;
- That the scheme is essentially private in nature and purpose;
- The scheme does not qualify as a professional investor fund in terms of guidelines issued for this purpose by the said authority.
One of the participants may be a body corporate subject to such restrictions, requirements and conditions as laid down in guidelines issued by the said authority in terms of Article 6 of the Investment Services Act.
Any such recognition shall not be deemed to be a licence for the purpose of Articles 2 and 12 of the Income Tax Act.
