Against a continually changing legal, economic and regulatory backdrop, our Investment Management experts are at the forefront of all new developments across the full fund lifecycle.

We advise managers and investors on the formation, structure, operation and regulation of:

• broad range of investment funds (including retail funds (both UCITS and AIFs), real estate funds, infrastructure funds, private equity funds, hedge funds and venture capital funds);
• asset pooling structures;
• investment management agreements; and
• fiduciary management agreements.

We have in-depth knowledge of the specific requirements applicable to Dutch pension funds and insurance companies. We are regularly involved in drafting industry principles on behalf of InvestEurope, the Dutch Private Equity Association (NVP) and the Dutch Fund and Asset Management Association (DUFAS).
