Financial Services

Arthur Cox’s Asset Management and Investment Funds Group is a market leader, advising on all aspects of investment management issues and the establishment and ongoing operation of investment funds in Ireland.

Established in 1990, the Group consists of a very experienced team that is “thorough and well-resourced” and continues to demonstrate its in depth understanding of all types of investment funds, including UCITS, AIFs, hedge funds, property funds and private equity funds.

The Group advises many leading financial institutions, investment banks and asset management companies on the establishment of their investment fund structures, as well as service providers to funds, and provides ongoing legal and regulatory advice to those clients. The Group’s reputation for expertise and innovation is endorsed by its impressive client list.

The Group has consistently worked with its clients over the years to develop innovative solutions to their product ranges and other requirements. Among the transactions in which the Group has been involved which are firsts of their kind are the following:

  • Establishing the first UCITS money market fund
  • Establishing the first exchangetraded fund in Ireland
  • Obtaining approval from the Central Bank for the establishment of side pockets
  • Obtaining clearance from the Central Bank to allow UCITS to invest in bank loans
  • Obtaining approval from the Central Bank for pooling of collective investment scheme assets
  • Arranging the first redomiciliation of a fund to Ireland pursuant to the 2009 Act
  • Establishing the first REIT property fund
  • Obtaining authorisation for the first multi-manager UCITS fund
  • Obtaining authorisation to establish the first UCITS fund using a Mauritian subsidiary company to invest in India
  • Obtaining authorisation for the first UCITS to invest up to 100% of its assets in Brazilian sovereign debt
  • Obtaining authorisation for the first fund to be allowed to charge expenses to capital
  • Effecting cross-border mergers under the UCITS Directive.

Listing Services

Arthur Cox provides listing services through Arthur Cox Listing Services (“ACLS”), which was approved by the Irish Stock Exchange as an authorised sponsor in early 2004 to provide listing services for specialist debt securities and investment funds. With an already thriving and successful Capital Markets and Funds practice, the establishment of the listing department was seen as the perfect complement to the already existing businesses.

This marked a significant strategic move for the firm and allows us to provide a full service to our Funds and Capital Markets clients, from advising them legally on their structures and products to listing them on the Irish Stock Exchange.
