The European passport allows a UCITS to be sold to all types of investors and registered for distribution in all EU Member States. The fact that a UCITS is no longer obliged to follow an authorization process in each market has considerably accelerated the process of launching a UCITS and reduced related costs. Although Minimum capital requirement of EUR 1.25 Mio has to be reached within six months following approval.

The strong regulation of UCITS and the resulting high level of investor protection have made them popular with supervisory authorities and retail investors all over the world.
