  • Pan-European fundraising: Successfully raised funds from various European countries for various asset classes.

100% Compliant

  • After Brexit, UK (London) is regulatory wise strictly out as the hub for EU wide fundraising. UK is after Brexit no more part of AIFMD regime and UK regulated placement agents cannot continue 3rd party marketing for asset managers in EU.
  • From August 1st, 2021 onwards new regulation will be effective and pre marketing will be then regulated: For fundraising purposes the asset manager has to have an own MIFID license in place or alternatively has to work with a regulated placement agent.
  • DCPLA is compliant in the European Union: DCPLA in EU is a fully regulated financial services provider and 100% compliant with the EU laws. Plus, we qualify to sell to UK investors.
  • With this license we beat 90%* of our peers and give 100% confidence to our GP clients.

*Most of our peers are located in the UK and only  10% meet the rigid requirements of MIFID. See placement agent list in Preqin as of June 2021.
