Investment Funds

We are Stibbe Investment Funds specialists

We provide our investment funds clients with a fully integrated corporate, finance and tax team to cater for all their legal needs.

Investment Funds

As a top-tier investment funds practice, we assist with the establishment, structuring and administration of a broad range of investment funds for fund managers, pension funds and banks.

Our specialists handle UCITS, AIFs, REITs, pension funds, hedge funds and private equity funds. Working across the Benelux, they collaborate closely to ensure a cohesive and effective service.

Key aspects of our service include advising on the corporate and tax efficient structuring of funds. We also assist asset managers to be compliant with, and to benefit from, the EU Directive regarding Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFMD). In such matters we help with authorisation, on-going operation and compliance requirements regarding distribution and disclosures for managers of Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs), together with all regulatory, corporate and tax aspects.

Our team provides pragmatic solutions with regards to setup, structuring and distribution of regulated and unregulated funds as well as other regulated entities such as depositaries or investment managers that advise or service funds and professional clients.

We also handle complex litigation that may arise in connection with management of, or investment into, funds structures.
