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. We regard ourselves as the ideal legal partner in this environment as one of the few law firms with a genuine 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, we 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.
