Based on the common law, Abu Dhabi Global Market's (ADGM) funds framework balances a business-friendly environment for industry practitioners whilst retaining appropriate levels of investor protection. ADGM allows fund managers located both within and outside of ADGM to establish funds within its jurisdiction utilising a wide range of available corporate, limited partnership and trust vehicles, including Sharia compliant funds and structures.

ADGM fund managers may establish and manage funds outside of ADGM, whilst any firm with the appropriate ADGM Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) permission may also promote and sell both ADGM funds and foreign funds in or from ADGM. ADGM recognises that the ability for new players to enter the market is key to developing a thriving funds industry. As such, ADGM has developed a framework that allows for startup and boutique fund managers to establish within ADGM to manage non-retail funds.

 

"Late last year we decided to open an office in the Middle East in order to further expand our business in this important region. In terms of potential jurisdictions we considered a number of factors including- proximity to existing and potential investors, adoption of international regulatory & legal standards, flexibility to adopt our global policies, ease of set up and access to a strong local talent pool. ADGM is the natural choice as a result and has exceeded our high expectations as we’ve set up our local subsidiary." - ANDREW PAUL, Head of Group Strategy
