Our EU funds team is experienced in all of the core asset classes we support globally: private equity, private debt, real estate, hedge funds and digital asset funds. In addition to providing services to funds domiciled in Europe, our team also supports Europe-based managers with funds domiciled in other international jurisdictions, particularly the Cayman Islands.
Luxembourg is Europe’s most popular destination for the establishment of alternative investment funds offering institutional fund managers an attractive and flexible range of fund structuring options. Our team is well-versed in Luxembourg's full range of fund vehicles, including the SIF, SICAR, RAIF, SCSp, umbrella fund structures and securitisation vehicles. Our Luxembourg office is authorised to act as a depositary to private equity, real estate, infrastructure and debt funds.
Malta has long been a hub for innovative fund management and in particular is recognised for its ability to provide flexible and cost effective solutions for smaller managers. Our team is familiar with Malta's range of fund regimes for professional investors, including the AIF, NAIF PIF and NPIF, offering fund administration, as well as regulatory and related services to our clients. Our Malta office is also one of our two global centres of excellence for the administration of digital asset funds.
An emerging centre for fund domiciliation and management, Cyprus offers a range of regulated and unregulated fund structures, including: mutual funds; variable or fixed capital investment companies; and limited partnerships. Cyprus offers two AIFMD-compliant fund options: the fully regulated AIF and the RAIF, which offers flexibility and quick time to market, with no local approval or supervision requirements, but which must be managed by a regulated AIFM.
Our global fund services team provides specialist industry expertise and technology, combined with personal service and a commitment to long-term relationships. Over 700 alternative asset funds worldwide, ranging from multi-billion-dollar funds to next generation managers, trust us to support their business.
