Types-of-Investment-Funds-in-Czech-Republic.jpgThe investment market in Czech Republic is not very developed, but the local authorities are imposing numerous measures to improve the quality of this field. Foreign investors can set up several types of investment funds, as prescribed by the regulations imposed by the European Union (EU). At the level of 2015, there were 350 investment funds domiciled in Czech Republic, while 1,300 funds were available for public offer in this country. Our team of specialists in company formation in Czech Republic can offer in-depth information on how to register an investment vehicle

Legal forms for Czech investment funds 

In 2013, the Czech government enacted new laws regulating the investment funds, in order to align with the directives prescribed by the EU. At the level of 2013, three new forms of investment funds became available in Czech Republic, as follows: 
joint stock company with variable capital (SICAV);
limited partnership
trust fund
In addition, investors can also register the following structures: 
mutual fund;
joint stock company;
European company. 
Businessmen who are interested in company formation in Czech Republic should also know that the fund legislation available here provides another type of vehicle – the Qualified Investor Fund (QIF). Our team of company formation agents in Czech Republic can offer more details on this structure. 
The QIF was introduced in 2007 and it is addressed to qualified investors – who can be represented by legal entities operating in the financial field (banks, credit institutions) or by natural persons who have an extensive knowledge in the investment sector
The QIFs are considered to be alternative investment funds which benefit from a lower level of regulation, compared to other types of funds.

The company registration in Czech Republic related to an investment fund falls under the regulations of the Czech National Bank, which is the main regulator of such vehicles. In order to open an investment fund in Czech Republic, the investors will need a capital of minimum EUR 1.25 million.
