Registration of SIF (share investment fund) in Ukraine

A share investment fund (SIF) is one of the popular forms of investment that allows investors to pool their financial resources to jointly manage and invest in various financial instruments such as stocks, bonds, real estate, and many others.

Main capabilities and features of SIF

  • Diversification. A mutual fund provides an opportunity to invest funds in various types of assets, such as stocks, bonds, real estate, commodities, and other investment opportunities. This allows you to spread risks and reduce the impact of market fluctuations on investments.
  • Professional management. A mutual investment fund is usually managed by professional specialists and fund managers who have deep knowledge and experience in the financial sector. This allows investors to use expert knowledge to select the best investment opportunities.
  • Liquidity. Some mutual funds offer investors the ability to withdraw their funds at any time, usually with minimal fees or restrictions. This provides more liquidity to the portfolio than, for example, investing in real estate or private companies.
  • Complexity of investment strategies. A mutual fund can use various investment strategies, including active or passive portfolio management, high-frequency trading, and others. This allows investors to choose a fund that matches their investment goals and risk level.
  • Availability for different types of investors. Such a fund is open to various types of investors, including individuals, institutional investors, pension funds, and others. This makes the SIF affordable even for those who have a small starting capital.
  • Transparency and reporting. PIFs are usually required to provide regular reports to investors on the fund’s financial performance and performance. This ensures a high level of transparency and trust.
  • Tax benefits. In some countries, investors may receive tax benefits for investing in mutual funds, such as tax deferral of income until funds are withdrawn from the fund.

In general, a mutual investment fund is a powerful tool for investors that provides an opportunity to expand their investment portfolio, benefit from professional management, and reduce risks.

  • Obtaining licenses. Many countries require such a fund to obtain special licenses to carry out investment activities. These licenses may be issued by a regulatory authority or other relevant agencies.
  • Determination of investment strategy. A mutual fund must determine its investment strategy, including the types of assets it plans to invest in, and the risks and returns it expects to receive.
  • Selection of the fund manager. The SIF must also select a fund manager who is responsible for making investment decisions and managing the fund’s assets.
  • Financial accounting. A mutual investment fund must keep records of all financial transactions and fund assets in accordance with established standards and rules.
