Funds Finance

Best in class offering across the funds finance market

The funds finance market is highly competitive and requires both technical excellence and a focus on innovation to achieve the best results.

Our team of specialists works on unique and complex deals which push the envelope and require the best minds in the Australian market. Whilst not necessary on every transaction, we can provide personnel and the mind set to partner with you on achieving your objectives.

We are the ideal legal partner in this environment, as one of the few law firms with genuinely in-depth knowledge of fund structuring.

In addition to fund level subscription financing and equity bridge financing, whether for working capital or as longer-term leverage, clients appoint us to act on:

  • Banks divesting their loan books, either by sale or sale with vendor financing, as they sell to distressed debt funds
  • Financing based on equity commitment undertakings from the fund
  • Carry/co-investment facilities to the general partners, executives and employees in particular in relation to consumer credit issues
  • Limited partner financing for their partnership interests
  • “Whole of life” facilities which look initially at the investor uncalled commitments and then at a combination of net asset value (NAV) and uncalled commitments
  • Pre-close and warehousing facilities including put/call options.

Market highlights

  • AMP Capital: on numerous fund financings for Infrastructure Debt Funds.
  • QIC: on a financing arrangement for its Global Infrastructure Fund.
  • HSBC: acted for offshore banks on capital call and funds financings in HK and EU markets.
  • Confidential Private Equity Sponsor: in connection with its capital call fund financing facility.
  • A confidential client: acting for the lender under a fund financing facility for a resources focussed private equity sponsor.

TESTIMONIAL

Pragmatic and commercial approach to all issues supported by strong technical legal expertise and market experience... good approach to staffing with the right balance of senior and junior resources.

Chambers and Partners

Good bench strength and well-trained and supervised associates and collegiate approach to client relationships, the focus is on who is best placed to provide the advice rather than the relationship partner being incentivised to personally 'hoard' as much of the work as possible.

Chambers and Partners

In terms of value, the firm is outstanding. It is proficient, commercial and provides practical advice. In short, it has not only delivered what we would expect in a fund formation counsel, but exceeded our overall expectations.
