Hedge fund – a phrase that is often heard from financiers and people associated with the investment. Hedge fund – a fairly young concept was first founded in 1949, but these funds have received prominence in the late eighties of the last century, especially when the world known Soros foundation has played on the fall of the pound sterling and made a billion dollars in profits!
All planetary hedge funds manage cash flows at a rate of about two trillion dollars, even on a global scale is quite a lot, and most important in the hedge – weak regulation and control opportunities. That is, using hedging reduces the risk and profit increases due to all sorts of strategies. Hedge fund often uses options, futures, and also earns on a falling market.
Recent statistics show that most wealthy people are making investment in hedge funds, and even the number of funds is growing, they are profitable. Top ten of funds brought in last year from forty to seventy percent of pure profit.
WHY HEDGE FUND IS GOOD IN MALTA?
What is so attractive in hedge funds in jurisdictions such as Malta? After all, an investment fund – this is not the enterprise and not the company, why open it in Malta?
There are several reasons, among which are the main:
- increased government regulation;
- tax increase;
- lower threshold for capital investment.
Not only re-opened, two-three last years solid existing hedge funds are moving from Europe to Malta, and all thanks to the growing pressure from the states. Financial institutions of the largest European countries gradually strengthen regulation of professional fund management, which, of course, is not to the liking of the management companies, because thanks to the weak regulation hedge funds bring high profit. When managers are linked by different rules, they can not guarantee profits and low risks.
Also, many funds did not particularly like increases in tax rates, starting with the 2010-2011, after which their government initiated moving offices to Geneva, but soon became the best solution Malta.
Malta has not only loyal tax laws, but also cheap offices, and all life is cheaper, so fund managers have moved to the archipelago the main part of employees.
Now Malta opens many hedge funds, and with favorable conditions for investors.
Not every wealthy person will be able to invest in a hedge fund of five million dollars, as required, for example, in American professional funds. Fund in Malta takes capital from several tens of thousands of dollars, which is more accessible to the masses.
