Ireland’s newest fund vehicle, the Irish Collective Asset-management Vehicle (ICAV), offers a flexible corporate structure which can be used to establish both UCITS and alternative investment funds. The ICAV was introduced in order to provide a more tailored, bespoke corporate solution designed to meet the needs of European investment funds and their investors.  Significantly, existing funds established as investment companies have the option of converting to ICAV status while funds domiciled outside of Ireland can migrate into Ireland as ICAVs by continuation.

Our suite of ICAV briefing notes provides useful information on the ICAV including the key features and benefits of the ICAV, establishing an ICAV and converting an existing investment company to an ICAV.

If you would like to receive hard copies of any of these papers, please contact the partners listed in the briefing notes or your usual Asset Management and Investment Funds contact.
