The operation of unregulated collective investment schemes in the UK is restricted under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000. This typically includes limited partnerships and limited liability partnerships which have long been a popular choice amongst investors wishing to invest alongside others whilst preserving their own tax status.
The role of the FCA authorised operator is to take overall responsibility for the administration of the fund and have oversight of the financial aspects, ensuring in particular that investors’ cash and assets are properly safeguarded.
