Purpose of this form

The purpose of this form is to facilitate the notification requirement in CIR Rule 18.2.1 of the DFSA's Rulebook pursuant to Article 56 of the Collective Investments Law.

Article 56 of the Collective Investment Law 2006 requires the Operator of a Private Fund to notify the DFSA at least 14 days prior to the initial, and if a closed-ended Fund any subsequent, issue or offer of Units in the Fund.

Additional information is also required concerning certain prime broker arrangements set out under CIR Rule 18.2.1(b) where the Private Fund is also a Hedge Fund.

Do not use this form in respect of a Public Fund, which instead requires an application for registration of the Fund with the DFSA by submission of Form AFN CIR F1—Registration of a Public Fund.

On receipt of this form (CIR F2), the DFSA may, as appropriate, request a copy of the Prospectus of the Private Fund or any other information to provide further clarification.
