Retailising Private Assets

We are a market leader in the “retailisation” or “democratisation” of private investment opportunities, supporting the expansion of access by non-professional investors to private asset classes such as private equity, private credit and infrastructure.

Our unique team combines the strengths of our retail funds and private funds practices, backed by our top-tier tax practice, to support and deliver bespoke retailisation structures for our clients across all asset classes and liquidity horizons.

  • We act for private fund managers, institutional asset managers and hosted authorised corporate directors in the design, formation, distributions, and ongoing operation of retailised fund structures.
  • Our flexible international strategy, partnering with the best overseas law firms to fit a client’s specific needs, is ideally suited to the specialised nature of this work, allowing us to act for clients looking to attract investors across many different jurisdictions. We regularly advise on the exploration and formation of a unified UK-European retailisation strategy, navigating the myriad local requirements for our clients.
  • We advise on funds investing in strategies ranging from liquid public market securities through to illiquid private and real assets, with similarly broad investor liquidity profiles: from daily dealing, through semi-liquid, evergreen and fully closed-ended, meaning we can advise clients on bespoke retailisation solutions.

We are an active participant in both UK and European industry groups supporting regulatory bodies to implement and enhance regulatory regimes supportive of retailisation strategies.
