Investment funds and private equity

Clients value our longstanding experience in investment funds and our active role in the market. Indeed, investment funds and private equity work form two key pillars of Carey Olsen’s corporate practice.

We advise on all fund structures including open and closed-ended, limited partnerships, unit trusts and companies in the British Virgin Islands (BVI), the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey. We represent more companies and funds listed on the London Stock Exchange than any other offshore law firm (The Corporate Advisers Rankings Guide, February 2014) and regularly advise on listings on the NYSE and HKEx, Euronext and CISE.  

We advise credit and debt funds, clean-tech funds, real-estate funds, retail and listed funds, private equity funds, venture capital funds, hedge funds and infrastructure funds.

Among our clients are fund managers, investment and private banks, institutional investors, boutique investment firms, insurance groups, pension funds, private equity houses and trust companies. We also have excellent relationships with onshore legal advisers who repeatedly instruct us. Our lawyers understand the requirements and priorities of each interest group and tailor our services accordingly. We find innovative solutions particularly in challenging economic times.

The strength of our relationships with regulators in our jurisdictions means our clients benefit from our innate knowledge of the latest developments in regulation and compliance standards.
