Professional Investor Fund

The Professional Investor Fund has been superseded by the Specialist Fund.

The Collective Investment Schemes (Legacy) Regulations 2010 means that no new Professional Investor Funds can be established however existing funds may continue.

Professional Investor Funds are subject to the Financial Supervision (Professional Investor Fund) (Exemption) Order 1999. It should be noted that this subordinate legislation made under the Financial Supervision Act 1988 continues to have effect as if it was made under the relevant provisions of the CIS Act.
