Dear Sir,

Re: Quarterly Information Returns for Collective Investment Schemes

Further to our Circular No. BC/15/97 of 5th October 1997, regarding the Quarterly Information Returns that you are requested to be submitted to the Agency at the end of each quarter. The Agency would like to inform you that the following changes are incorporated in the above return:

•   "Geographical Location of the Investment" column is divided into two items: (i) the funds that are invested by each scheme (mutual fund) Inside Bahrain, and (ii) the funds that are invested by a scheme Outside Bahrain.
•   "Major Markets of the Fund" column indicates the markets in which the scheme invests its funds (i.e. US, EC countries, GCC, Global....etc).

For the sake of clarity, please refer to the attached example on how to fill the return.

The attached return replaces the previous return attached to the Agency's Circular No. BC/15/1997 dated 5th October 1997 with effect from the fourth quarter of 2001. The first return using the attached form will, therefore, be for the quarter ending 31st December 2001 and should be sent to the Agency on a date not later that 21st January 2002.

Should you have any queries in respect of any matter referred to in this Circular, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Abdul Rahman Al-Baker, Head of Investment Business on Tel 547449 or Fax No. 537554.

Yours faithfully,

Dr. Khalid Abdulla Ateeq
Executive Director Banking Control
