Investment Funds

Another core practice of the firm is representation of investors in private equity and other funds, particularly public institutions acting as anchor investors in emerging market funds.  In recent years, we have represented a dozen development finance institutions on their fund investments, many on multiple deals.  HSM also represents general partners in the formation of funds, particularly emerging managers targeting public institutions as investors.

We have represented investors on more than 45 investment funds transactions representing $2.5 billion in capital commitments.  These representations involved:

  • A broad range of circumstances and investment strategies
  • Varied fund jurisdictions – from Delaware to Cayman, Ontario to England, Mauritius to Luxembourg – and target markets on virtually every continent
  • Funds that numbered among their limited partners some of the largest and most influential investors in the space.

As a result, HSM understands the full spectrum of fund terms and conditions, what is “market”, and variations within terms.  And, we have a proven track record of efficiently closing funds deals.
