Form B230 — Operating CIFs is designed to capture the data regarding all types of CIFs being operated by the Authorised Firms. This scope of this form is restricted to CIFs classified as Domestic Funds as per the CI Laws and the rules in the CIR module of the DFSA Rulebook.


This form is applicable to Authorised Firms licensed to operate Collective Investment Funds (CIFs) registered in the DIFC. These include Authorised Firms operating as branches in the DIFC.


The form is intended to capture information pertaining to the number of CIFs and the assets under management for each type of CIF. The form seeks data relating to CIFs classified as per the type of fund, whether they are public or private funds and by type of investment vehicle used by the CIF. The total number of funds and the total assets under management reported must be the same for the three broad categories. Authorised firms are required to report all data on assets under management in USD terms, including the assets denominated in other currencies.

Structure of the form in EPRS

B230 is a single form which has three sections. The first section seeks the classification of CIFs between public and private funds. The second section seeks classification of the data across types of funds based on the asset classes, strategies or investment structures. The third section seeks the data classified as per the investment vehicle of the CIFs.
