Sponsored, Closely Held Investment Vehicle

Sponsored Closely Held Investment Vehicles are certified deemed-compliant FFIs that are not required to register with the IRS and obtain a GIIN. However, the Responsible Officer (RO) of the sponsoring entity is required to make a certification of compliance with the due diligence requirements for preexisting accounts. If the sponsoring entity is including any sponsored closely held investment vehicle in this certification, it must select "yes" and provide the name and country/jurisdiction of each sponsored closely held investment vehicle. The system allows up to 100 sponsored closely held investment vehicles to be added per certification. If the sponsoring entity has more than 100 sponsored closely held investment vehicles, a separate certification will need to be submitted for the remaining entities.
