Focussing on all three aspects of asset management: collective portfolio management, individual portfolio management and depository services, our integrated team covers all relevant legal areas across the Benelux, including financial regulatory, corporate and tax law.
We handle these complex matters for a broad range of clients including banks, custodians, investment firms, fund managers and professional investors.
Regarding collective portfolio management (UCITS, AIFs, pension funds, REITs, hedge funds and private equity funds), we act on the entire range of legal issues and regulatory requirements relating to the structuring, management and marketing of funds.
With respect to individual portfolio management, our asset management team advises the managers of both professional investors’ portfolios as well as retail investors’ portfolio on all corporate, tax and regulatory aspects. We handle matters such as licensing requirements, negotiation of asset management mandates, compliance with MiFID requirements, and high profile litigation.
We also advise custodians, depositories and their clients on various issues including ownership of securities, segregation of assets, rules of conduct and investment compliance.
