Who we are

The IFF is a platform for enterprises and organisations involved in cross-border investment facilitation. Our members consist of corporate service providers (CSP) that operate on a global level. Our member companies assist institutional, corporate and private investors in the management and proper administration of their cross-border investments.

All organizations face the same challenges when investing in third countries. They are confronted with administrative burdens,  regulatory risks and uncertainty regarding the rules and laws applying in other jurisdictions. Our member companies deal with these burdens, risks and uncertainties. They take care of all the governance, legal-, regulatory-, compliance – and administrative aspects in relation to the setting-up of investment funds and the corporate entities which are commonly used in cross-border investments. By doing so, they allow their clients to focus on their core business.

The IFF aims to contribute to the debate on international investment flows at global, EU, and national level by providing qualitative information about global investment facilitation to policymakers, media, and the public. Our ambition is to contribute to public understanding of global investment facilitation, and the value of these activities. We are committed to working with authorities and stakeholders all over the world to ensure a fair, effective, and balanced legal framework for the facilitation of investments.

Current members of the IFF are SGG Group, TMF Group and Vistra.
