Our fund structuring abilities deliver our clients regulated, tax optimised vehicles which are subject to robust corporate governance frameworks.
Our fund structuring capabilities range from providing assistance in the selection of tax domicile and choice of fund structure, applying for requisite regulatory approvals, implementing corporate governance arrangements, devising and implementing financing strategy and the appointment of external administrative service providers such as custodian, depository agent, valuers and auditors.
New regulated fund vehicles can be quickly and cost efficiently established utilising our FCA regulated AIFM external management entity with the fund vehicle itself established either locally or in common jurisdictions such as Luxembourg or the Netherlands.
As an Alternative Investment Manager (AIFM) regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), we have in place the infrastructure and procedures required to efficiently launch new externally managed fund vehicles.
Via the previous experience of our senior management, we have a working knowledge of achieving UCITS approvals for European listed funds/REIT’s as well as applying for and maintaining Alternative Investment Fund (AIF) status for regulated unlisted funds in compliance with the Alternative Investment Fund Manager Directive (AIFMD).
As an AIFM, our firm can take advantage of European pass-porting privileges to seamlessly market new funds in addition to being able to market funds in other jurisdictions such as Australia due to our corresponding authorisations.
Best-in-class external administrative service providers can be reliably engaged based on our pre-existing relationships with numerous leading custodians, depository agents, valuers and auditors.
We utilise external market research to identify key metrics and influences essential to our investment analyses and which provide an early indication of market shifts.
Identifying turning points in market conditions before they happen, is key to our being ahead of our competition and structuring funds which solve a problem or fulfil a market gap. Accurate and timely analysis of such market research helps to ensure this.
In developing investment strategies for our clients’, we anlayse relevant data with input from our asset managers who are abreast of micro-market trends and pressures. Beyond the property-level we also consider often overlooked influences such as current and anticipated investor preferences relevant for assessing exit strategy, and the liquidity of specific assets.
