Malta Funds Industry Association   mfia

Scotstone Investments Limited (“Scotstone”), an international investment company founded in 2006 in the Cayman Islands, provides international investment hosting services to funds, on Malta and Cayman Islands hosting platforms.


Hosted fund set-up:


Scotstone offers managers the ability to launch a Cayman domiciled fund as an independent and entirely segregated cell within an existing umbrella fund structure. This gives managers the benefits of launching at very low cost, speed to market (launching without the delay associated with starting a new fund), lower ongoing management fees by benefitting from scale of the existing platforms. Each sub-fund is set up as a Segregated Portfolio that is entirely and legally separate from all other portfolios to avoid any cross-contamination. Managers of cells may elect to move off the platform into a stand-alone fund at any time.


Hosted asset manager:


Scotstone Fund Managers Limited (“Scotstone Malta”) is authorised by the MFSA to operate as a De Minimis Alternative Investment Fund Manager, as per the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (“AIFMD”). Non-EU based managers who do not wish to undertake the regulatory and management costs or diversion of setting up another regulatory entity can operate through the regulatory license of Scotstone Malta as a recognised De Minimis Alternative Investment Fund Manager. This will require the relevant investment management activities of the manager to be subject to the compliance oversight of Scotstone Malta, which is currently in the process of opting-in under the AIFMD in order to be licensed as a fully qualified Alternative Investment Fund Manager.
