Alternative Asset Management

At the Asset level

Alternative Asset Management

Overview

Creating value requires not just identifying prime opportunities but continued effective stewardship of those investments. Increased capital consolidation across alternatives assets has been accompanied by the diversification of investment strategies. Many sophisticated private capital providers no longer invest in only one asset class. Flexibility is crucial.

High valuations and competition for assets mean clients look to us to close challenging transactions that will maintain their competitive advantage. A diverse strategy does not have to mean sacrificing continuity in your advisers. We recognise that defining participants in the alternatives space by their investment in specific asset classes has become too rigid an approach. Our market-leading private capital team has experience across private equity, infrastructure, real estate, and private credit.

From financing to regulation to tax structuring, by integrating cross-practice specialists alongside our market-leading M&A expertise, one connected team handles every aspect of a transaction. Often this same team continues the relationship beyond the acquisition, advising our clients throughout the full lifecycle of an investment and on to an eventual exit.

Our understanding of the private capital market and cross-practice approach also means we are perfectly positioned to advise you on current market trends including how to preserve exposure to key assets beyond the time constraints of a fund through single-asset or multi-asset GP-led transactions, and the re-emergence of UK SPACs.
