We act for an unparalleled number of bank and independently sponsored offshore and onshore fund platforms and we work closely with leading onshore law firms to assist our clients with overcoming the challenges and demands of structuring, establishing, operating and distributing a successful platform.
Our experience in the establishment of platforms encompasses a broad range of different structures with a variety of different vehicles and fund types, including exempted companies, exempted limited partnerships, SPCs, unit trusts, UCITS, AIFs, ICAVs, ETFs and managed accounts.
Our depth of expertise, knowledge and experience means that we are able to respond to and meet our clients' needs, including establishing new vehicles within tight time frames; structuring the platform to meet legal, regulatory or tax requirements; creating new fund or fund-linked products and creating form documents for use across the platform so as to streamline the processes associated with the operation of multiple fund structures, service providers and counterparties.
We offer listing (CSX and ISE) and global registrations services to assist our clients with the sale, distribution and marketing of platforms.
We understand the administrative burdens of operating a number of vehicles across a platform. Our proprietary entity management system, Maples eServices, will provide you with 24 hour web-based access to all of the fund documentation for each of the entities on the platform and a host of other related information and services.
Our affiliate MaplesFS is able to provide independent directors, share trustee services and financial statement compilation, which are critical requirements for many platform sponsors. This relationship with MaplesFS can be key for many sponsors in creating efficiencies in the establishment and administration of the platform.
