PwC Cyprus: Israel’s innovative Fund Industry can thrive in Cyprus’ favourable system

”The Asset Management sector has always been at the forefront of change and innovation and to succeed in this space you need to be agile and future-focused, like our Israeli counterparts” said Ms. Christia Evagorou, Director at PwC Cyprus. “The Israeli Asset Management scene is indeed one that places importance on innovation and for this reason it is attracting considerable attention from international investors” she explained.

On the other hand, “Cyprus’ regulatory and legal framework is classed as one of the most flexible in the EU, while maintaining high levels of investor protection” said Ms. Nayia Ziourti, Advocate and Director at PwC Cyprus. Indeed, Cyprus’ legal system which is modeled on the English legal system, is attractive to many investors and managers. “Both the private and public sector are placing a lot of emphasis on making Cyprus one of the most attractive Fund and Asset Management jurisdictions by offering a comprehensive solution to the modern Asset Managers and Investors” added Evagorou.
