Umbrella fund services

Investors and initiators seeking to enter the European market without setting up their own fund or investment vehicle can now do so by means of a RAIF – Reserved Alternative Investment Fund – Umbrella Fund.

TMF Group together with Crestbridge and ING provide an Umbrella fund, offering a comprehensive, cost and time-effective solution for investing in Europe.

The Umbrella Fund’s structure enables investors and initiators to use one or more “compartments” in an established structure, which is fully AIFM compliant, with Crestbridge as AIFM, TMF Group as Fund Administrator and ING as depositary/custodian.

Umbrella RAIF

The Umbrella Fund is set up as a RAIF, which offers a fast set-up, as it doesn’t need prior approval from the CSSF. It also provides the opportunity of getting a European Passport through the AIFM and the features of a Specialised Investment Fund (SIF).

Benefits of a strong partnership

The TMF Group, Crestbridge and ING partnership combines the expertise of three experienced and knowledgeable companies in the funds and investments space.
