Offshore Mutual Funds

by Offshore Legal Support Inc.



Stock Market every time is more complex and diversified, usually people get confuse between an offshore mutual fund recognized for a jurisdiction and private investment auto denominated mutual funds. That is not a mutual fund investment or hedge fund investment, is a pool between some investor who decide to make their own decision around the world in real estate, bonds, stocks or any other investment instruments.


There is a different between a mutual fund and investment fund. An investment fund is a pool of money added by a small or large number of subscribers or shareholders, which is invested and administered on their behalf. They share the proceeds (or losses) in proportion to their subscriptions after deduction of costs.


A mutual fund (a unit trust in the UK) is an investment fund divided into units (equivalent to shares) which can be bought from and sold back to the manager of the fund, but which are not traded as such. The value of the fund NAV (net asset value) per unit is calculated frequently. Many countries have favorable tax regimes for mutual funds, to encourage saving. A mutual fund need to be regulated and inscribed as such. Please, be advised of it.
