Product Description:

Always Up to Date with LawCards
Investment regulations differ in each financial jurisdiction. LawCards are comprehensive predefined rule sets for MIG21 covering country-specific legal investment restrictions of the world's major financial centers. They support all asset classes, also complex structured products and derivatives.

LawCards keep you up to date with compliance developments around the globe so your UCITS and Non-UCITS funds can be launched in new legal jurisdictions without overheads or delay. Amendments to legislation are incorporated into the LawCards to ensure constant validity.

Our LawCard Service originated in 2001 in the highly regulated German market and subsequently proven with UCITS III and SEC 1940 Act regulations in multiple jurisdictions.
