Debt Funds

A changing regulatory landscape in the aftermath of the global financial crisis has created new opportunities for alternative lenders to provide innovative sources of funding.

Whether you are an established private debt manager beginning a new fund-raise, or a new entrant to the credit market, our global investment funds specialists can advise you on the right investment structure to achieve your fundraising goals.

Our funds lawyers work with 7 of the 10 largest debt investors worldwide (Private Equity International) and have an established reputation for advising debt managers on the launch of all types of British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey investment funds. We also have excellent working relationships with the regulatory authorities operating in our jurisdictions.

We advise fund managers on the formation of all types of debt funds (whether open and closed-ended, limited partnerships, unit trusts or companies), which target investments in a broad range of debt instruments, ranging from collaterised loan obligations (CLOs) and primary subordinated debt, to floating and fixed rate loans secured against cash flows and/or physical assets, to count a few recent examples.

We also have a particularly strong reputation for advising credit vehicles listed on a range of international exchanges, and advise more London Stock Exchange listed companies and funds than any other offshore law firm (Corporate Advisers Rankings Guide).
