Domestic Funds

A Domestic Fund is established or domiciled in the ADGM.  It can be classified, based on a marketing strategy, as one of the following: (i) Public Fund; (ii) Exempt Fund; (iii) or Qualified Investor Fund. 

 

A Public Fund shall be registered with the FSRA under Section 107 of the FSMR  to be promoted to retail investors in ADGM.  The fund manager of a Public Fund shall file a copy of the Prospectus (and any supplementary Prospectus) with the FSRA.  

An Exempt Fund and Qualified Investor Fund is subject to notification requirements under Section 112 of the FSMR.

 

Foreign Funds

A Foreign Fund is established or domiciled outside ADGM.  A Foreign Fund is subject to notification requirements under the Fund Rules. It cannot be promoted to retail investors unless the units of the Foreign Fund can be offered, under the home jurisdiction regulation applying to that Fund, to retail investors.
