Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs)

What are Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs)?

Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) are pooled investment vehicles where investors combine their resources to access diverse and atypical investment opportunities. In India, anyone interested in AIFs can invest through SEBI-registered entities.

A team of skilled professionals establishes these funds, raising capital from accredited domestic or international investors to explore lucrative investment prospects. SEBI-registered AIFs can be structured as trusts, limited liability partnerships, or companies. AIFs encompass a wide range of asset types beyond typical investments such as equities and bonds, including hedge funds, private equity, real estate, commodities, infrastructure, and other alternative investments. These investments carry distinct characteristics and risks compared to traditional options. An AIF's registration remains valid throughout its operational lifetime.

SEBI Categories of AIFs

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) categorizes Alternative Investment Funds into three broad categories:

☀ Category I AIF
☀ Category II AIF
☀ Category III AIF

Investors can choose to register in any of these categories based on their investment goals and strategies. KCAPL's Role in AIFs
