In pursuit of its objective of continuing to develop Bahrain as a major international financial centre for fund management business, the Agency introduced the Regulation with Respect to the General Supervision, Operation and Marketing of Collective Investment Schemes (1992).

Basically the above Regulation seeks to provide an appropriate framework of supervision for schemes that are established and/pr Marketed in/from Bahrain by banks and financial institutions. This framework ensures the soundness and stability with a view to providing a firm basis for the confidence of investors.

This publication has been produced for the benefit of banks and financial institutions involved or interested in establishing and/or marketing collective investment schemes in Bahrain. The Agency hopes that this publication will assist those involved in carrying out the above investment activities to better understand the requirements of the Agency in this area.
