Regulated Investment Funds

The Macfarlanes real assets team advises fund managers, investors and operators on all aspects of real asset funds, from structuring and formation to capital raising and deployment.

  • We view real assets as physical or tangible assets that have intrinsic value and generate income or capital appreciation, such as real estate, infrastructure, renewable energy and natural resources. Real asset funds invest in these assets across a range of strategies, from core to opportunistic real estate, operational real estate, infrastructure, sustainable infrastructure, and real estate and infrastructure debt.
  • We have extensive experience in designing and implementing fund structures that are tailored to the specific objectives, preferences and regulatory requirements of our clients, whether they are launching a blind-pooled fund, a managed account or a joint venture.
  • We also advise on the full spectrum of fund transactions, including acquisitions, disposals, financings, restructurings, co-investments and secondary transfers.
  • Our real assets team draws on the expertise of our market-leading tax, regulatory, finance, corporate and dispute resolution teams to provide a comprehensive and integrated service that covers all the legal and commercial issues that arise in the life cycle of any real asset fund.
  • We work closely with leading advisers in key jurisdictions, enabling us to offer seamless cross-border advice and support.
