1. Article 27(1)(e) of the Law requires a Domestic FundG that is not an Investment TrustG to have legal title to the Fund PropertyG registered with an eligible person (unless the Rules provide otherwise). Rule 12A.3.1(1) specifies that the person must be an Eligible CustodianG . Rule 12A.3.1(2) disapplies the requirement in relation to Fund PropertyG of certain kinds of Qualified Investor FundsG . Regardless of who holds title to Fund PropertyG , the Fund ManagerG must always ensure that, in accordance with Article 22(2)(f) of the Law, Fund PropertyG is clearly identified as such and held separately from property of the Fund ManagerG and any other FundsG .
2. Where a FundG invests in infrastructure projects (for example, the development of public facilities such as roads, railways or bridges), the Fund ManagerG may hold self-custody of the Fund PropertyG which consists of the interest in the infrastructure project. However, where it does so, the Fund ManagerG is not exempt from the overarching obligation under CIR 8.2.2(1) to UnitholdersG of the QIF to ensure safe custody of the Fund PropertyG . This envisages proper identification and segregation of the interest in the infrastructure project as Fund PropertyG of the QIFG .
