We work with financial institutions, private equity sponsors, fund managers and investors to provide tailored and pragmatic solutions to meet their financing needs and objectives, handling complex and cross-border transactions efficiently and seamlessly.

As members of our fund finance team are also sector-specific experts, we not only have a deep understanding of the structures and documentation relating to funds, but also the underlying fund assets. This gives us an additional perspective in the context of fund transactions and enhances our ability to advise on the due diligence, security, intercreditor and regulatory issues arising from these transactions, as well as the commercial and operational aspects.

Whether you are a lender or a borrower, a fund sponsor or an investor, we can help you navigate the fund finance market.
