Fond commun de placement
Fonds commun de placement translates to "investment funds" or "mutual funds", and are open-ended collective investment funds based that are neither trust or company law based. They are similar to Common contractual funds in Ireland.
In France, commonly referred to as FCP or F.C.P., these financial instruments are collective investments that are similar to the Sicav; both exist alongside one another. They aren't investment companies; they're more like open partnerships. They have no independent legal status but exist as a set of defined relationships between investors, managers and custodian. They invest in different financial instruments, but they do not have the tax status of the SICAV.
