Keeping Operations Compliant
Crypto funds have a unique place in the overall cryptocurrency market because they have tighter regulations and more clarity in some compliance elements, while still falling under shifting and obfuscated regulatory requirements.
Some jurisdictions may be better for fund development in your preliminary stages. IBA’s partners can assist you with determining the most suitable jurisdiction based on your specific fund variables.. If you’re already an established fund and are expanding into crypto or have an existing crypto-focus, you need a smart support network to help keep you up-to-date on current regulatory burdens for your reporting, trades, management, and more. Ask us about fund formation requirements for U.S. and UK FATCA, SEC, OPERA, and much more.
We stay on top of the global market and its requirements so that you can focus on making smart investments and generating the best returns for your fund. Remember, there are many instances where laws from countries you do not have a physical presence in still apply to your fund, businesses, and taxes.
Total Auditing and Reporting Help
Is your fund being run properly and are you making the right decisions for the asset class? Crypto funds are novel enough that many managers and leaders aren’t fully aware of the regulatory requirements, so existing audits can be insufficient and lead to significant delays or costs.
Our in-house and partner experts have expertise in leading crypto markets, evaluating your fund from the management perspective with software engineering expertise.. This rare combination of insight gives us a unique capability to manage the reporting for fair value throughout the fund’s activities, with a thorough review of your existing valuation policy. Get full valuation support based on your purchase price, similar companies in the space, ICO and future token performance, and more. IBA also understands the unique challenges that you must control for, including audits for custody of assets, your internal reporting, self-custody on the platforms you use, and how to ensure KYC and AML are applied throughout your marketing and financial process.
