The Securities & Investment Funds Practice Group offers clients a wide range of services in relation to investment funds, derivatives, capital markets, and financial products.

We offer legal advice with respect to the offering of securities by issuers in The Bahamas or the Cayman Islands and the requirements for the registration of an offering document with the relevant regulator. We can also advise in respect to the requirements for the licensing and regulation of entities wishing to conduct broker-dealer services or investment management services in or from within The Bahamas or the Cayman Islands.

We also advise on the process of setting up an investment fund to be regulated by the laws of The Bahamas or the Cayman Islands. More specifically, the firm’s attorneys can provide advice in relation to:

  • the requirements needed to set up the investment fund vehicle (corporation, partnership or trust)
  • the requirements to set up the investment fund, including the drafting of the memorandum and articles of association or such other constitutive documents
  • the preparation of the offering document and the material contracts of the investment fund

Additionally, the Firm’s attorneys counsel clients on the ongoing regulatory requirements for investment funds and the parties related to an investment fund as well as in respect of the ongoing regulatory requirements for public companies, broker-dealers and securities investment advisors.

The chair of this practice group is a member of the Project Team appointed by the Securities Commission of The Bahamas to draft the new Investment Funds legislation.
