Credit funds

We assist credit funds at all stages of their life cycle, and provide a complete range of services from fundraising onwards.

  • We have developed a significant credit fund practice for managers whose credit strategies and target returns vary significantly. 
  • The products we have been involved with range from direct lending, through to mezzanine funds, special situation funds, high yield products and other more liquid strategies.
  • We have advised on a variety of different fund structures in this context, including open-ended vehicles, closed-ended vehicles and hybrid arrangements which offer limited liquidity.
  • Our tax group, who work hand-in-hand with our investment management group, not only designs the most appropriate structure from a legal, tax and regulatory perspective but will also implement that structure.
