Investment funds play an increasingly important role in the global real estate market. We have the technical expertise, market experience and deep real estate sector focus to help you structure, establish, operate and, where necessary, exit the optimal fund vehicle to deliver your investment strategy.
We guide our clients through the regulatory, tax and structuring complexities of both domestic and international fund raising markets to deliver innovative financial products to suit their needs.
We can advise across retail and wholesale funds, investor-directed portfolio services, wrap platforms, and managed investment schemes through to equity, hybrid, debt and structured product offerings across all real estate asset classes and products.
