Hogan Lovells and Mourant Ozannes have won roles on the largest London IPO of a Guernsey company this year.
The John Laing Infrastructure Fund raised £270m on its 29 November listing on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). The IPO was oversubscribed and was the second largest investment fund to be launched on the LSE this year, following the £460m raised in April by the Fidelity Special Situations China Fund.
Mourant Ozannes partner Andrew Walters led the team providing Guernsey legal advice to the fund. “This is another great win for Guernsey and is particularly pleasing given the reduced number of listed funds being launched in the current climate,” he said.
Partners Philip Brown and Erik Jameson led the Hogan Lovells team, which provided UK advice on the IPO.
The John Laing fund will invest in a number of infrastructure assets. The fund is administered by Heritage International Fund Managers.
