UK firms benefit from Deutsche’s RREEF panel

A range of UK firms are celebrating roles on the new roster for Deutsche Bank Asset Management’s flagship alternative investment fund RREEF Alternative Investments.

CMS Cameron McKenna, Field Fisher Waterhouse, Fladgate Fielder and SJ Berwin are all understood to have secured their relationships with RREEF following the review.

RREEF handles investments in real estate, infrastructure, private equity and hedge funds. It is the biggest fund of its kind in the world, managing more than ?64bn (£44.6bn) worth of assets worldwide.

The work has already begun to flow in for the firms. Fladgate has advised RREEF on its £100m acquisition of Four Pillars Hotel Group, while earlier in the year SJ Berwin bagged a role advising RREEF on its first-ever European infrastructure fund, which weighed in at ?2bn (£1.39bn).

RREEF confirmed that the panel review had taken place but declined to comment further.
