Carey Olsen has an unrivalled practice for listed funds work, advising on the most significant fund listings in Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey.
Chambers and Partners describe our offshore funds practice as ‘The Kings of Funds’ due to our considerable industry experience, deep understanding of the listings process and long-established presence in the listed funds industry.
We have experience of a wide-range of asset classes, represent more funds listed on the LSE than any other offshore law firm (Corporate Advisers Rankings Guide) and regularly advise on listings on the NYSE, HKEx and Euronext. Our experience also includes extensive listings on the Specialist Fund Segment (SFS), AIM, the CSX and TISE.
We have longstanding relationships with onshore legal advisers, who instruct us on a regular basis, and among our clients are fund managers, investment and private banks, institutional investors, insurance and pension groups, private equity houses and investment trusts and companies.
Clients come to us for our commercial, practical approach and the experience and depth of our multi-jurisdictional fund listings practice. Our expertise includes advising on structuring, launches (including IPOs), tax, investment management agreements, disputes and regulatory issues including passporting, MiFID, FCA, AIFMD and FATCA.
