Investment Funds and Structures
Our Investment Funds Group in Germany advises on the establishment and on-going operation of a wide range of investment funds.
What sets us apart from our competitors is our experience across all areas of the asset management sector, in particular the combination of acting for asset managers and their investors. This allows our lawyers to provide cost-effective and high quality advice on structuring, implementation and closing of funds.
Our team's specific focus is on issues relating to the German Securities Trading Act and MiFID, traditional (UCITS) and alternative (in particular with a view to the AIFM Directive) investments and outsourcing.
We also advise international clients on M&A transactions in the financial services industry and on the development of structured fund products.
We advise financial institutions and investment companies in connection with fund structures (in particular in relation to VAG investors), the distribution of funds, licensing requirements under the German Banking Act and the German Payment Services Supervisory Law, the internal organisation of credit institutions, financial service providers and investment companies, outsourcing, regulatory issues in connection with the acquisition/divestment of participations in credit institutions and financial service providers, equity capital and liquidity, the code of conduct as well as on issues in relation to anti-money laundering regulations.
