Services

We assist asset managers on all legal, tax and regulatory aspects relating to the structuring, marketing, distribution, formation, administration and management of investment funds, such as undertakings for collective investments in transferable securities (UCITS) and regulated or unregulated alternative investment funds (AIFs), as well as other investment vehicles not qualifying as AIFs.

In the context of the launch of investment funds, our specialists provide valuable assistance in the negotiation of investment terms with investors, including large international institutional investors, such as development finance institutions (DFIs).

We also advise investors, including institutional investors, insurance companies, and pension funds, on matters relating to due diligence on target investment structures and negotiations of their investment’s terms.

Furthermore, we advise third-party alternative investment fund managers, asset managers, management companies, central administration agents, and other parties active in the financial sector on all corporate, tax and regulatory aspects. We handle matters such as licensing requirements, negotiation of asset management mandates, and compliance with MiFID requirements. We also advise custodians, depositories and their clients on various issues including ownership of securities, segregation of assets, rules of conduct, and investment compliance. We further assist clients in assessing the impact of changes of the regulatory framework in which they operate and in implementing the necessary changes in their business organisation.

Together with our litigation experts, our investment funds specialists also handle complex litigation that may arise in connection with the operations of or investment in fund structures.
