Private Equity and FSMA
Raising finance from private equity investors and through private placements presents the directors, managers and owners of investee entities with specific and onerous legal challenges.
We advise investors and investees on:
- the interaction and requirements of the different FSMA regimes: collective investment schemes, financial promotions and the prospectus regime
- the protections and other terms of the investment documentation
- the interaction of such funding with debt finance, and with the financial incentives that are available in certain sectors that can raise state aid concerns
Early legal advice is essential to ensure that the proposed fundraising is conducted within the rules and that communications are properly controlled.
