Singapore

Our global funds team has acted on some of the largest and most complex fund transactions in the market and our team is consistently recognised as a high calibre group that is capable of acting on multiple, simultaneous, large cross-border fund launches and transactions. 

Matt Nortcliff heads the Funds and Indirect Real Assets (FIRA) practice in Asia. Based in Singapore since 2010, Matt has witnessed first-hand the development of Singapore as a major asset management centre and has guided numerous funds and asset manager clients on their expansion into the region.

Our [Asia] funds practice acts for global and regional fund managers on the launch and closing of their funds across a range of sectors, including real estate, infrastructure, private equity, venture capital, hedge and debt funds. 

We also act for some of the world’s leading investors on their fund investments, whether directly or through multi-manager platforms. Our investor clients include sovereign wealth funds, pension funds, insurance companies and family offices. 

We work closely with the our Global Islamic Finance Group to advise on Shariah-compliant fund establishments, fund financings and fund investments. 

Our sector approach means that we focus on the underlying asset classes and emerging trends and we are regularly amongst the market leaders and early adopters of new fund structures.
