Fund Managers

Our core expertise spans alternative asset classes such as Private Equity, Private Debt, Real Estate & Infrastructure. We frequently design, implement and manage solutions for managing market risks in close-ended funds with restricted access to daily liquidity. We also work closely with these clients to design and execute optimal fund finance facilities.

Institutional Investors

We work with Limited Partners - investors in Alternative Investment Funds - to quantify the direct and indirect currency risk inherent in their alternative investment bucket, and to design, implement and manage hedging programmes to optimally mitigate those exposures. We are also retained across a number of co-invest vehicles and SMAs.

Corporates

Many financial sponsors will engage us to assist with the Due Diligence process prior to acquiring (or lending to) a corporate entity, in order to validate and adjust the investment case as well as to discover any potential risks. Our services specific to corporates are also often retained post-transaction, in order to protect the drivers of key performance indicators.
