Qatar publishes draft collective investment funds rules

The Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority (QFCRA) released a consultation paper and accompanying draft rules on the regulation of collective investment funds operating in or from the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) on 18 December 2006. The draft rules provide for the establishment and regulation of funds in the QFC for qualified investors. A regime for retail funds is also being separately developed in conjunction with the development of the wider retail regime in the QFC.

In addition, under the proposed regime QFC authorised firms will be able to advise on and market units in recognised foreign funds.

QFCRA Chairman and CEO Phillip Thorpe said: “The QFC laws allow for a wide range of collective investment fund activities to be conducted in or from the QFC and makes Qatar a particularly attractive venue for fund managers. Our proposed regime is closely modelled on widely accepted international practices and standards. Our intention is to have a high standard regime in which funds can operate and investors can participate with confidence.“
