An investment fund has been the vehicle for collectively investing for centuries. It is a versatile license that facilitates investment in various kinds of projects – from those aimed at generating returns above the market, to those acquiring stake in early-stage start-ups or those tackling climate change. It is thus an integral part of the global flow of capital and an investment fund license is a significant stepping stone towards realising a particular investment strategy.
