DIFC Structure

Special Purpose Company

An SPC can be established in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and is incorporated under the laws of the DIFC, a freezone located in Dubai that has its own law, English Common Law court system and its own financial regulator.

An SPC is commonly used:

  • For acquisition, holding or disposal of any asset
  • As a holding vehicle for a specific merger or acquisition transaction
  • For obtaining financing, granting of security, providing indemnities to shareholders or subsidiaries
  • To act as trustee
  • For financing of another SPC
  • For any other activities approved by the DIFC

Links Group, through a portfolio of Emirate owned LLC’s, can hold 100% shares in an SPC in trust for the foreign company, that require a Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) owned company for outbound transactions.
