Assets and investments require a proper game plan. Supported by expert advice.
Alongside capital markets, the funds industry plays an important role in the world of investments. At the same time, fund-linked investments are becoming increasingly interesting options on the financial market for companies and project developers. Mutual funds allow investors (acting alone or via a collective asset manager) to join forces in an investment fund. This in turn enables them to expand the horizons of their investment strategies by bundling capital, while diversifying risk at the same time. “Invest together to minimise risk” – this is the basic idea behind the funds industry.
Now that European standards regulate the industry, funds can cater to the demand for standardised investment opportunities in various asset classes on a transnational level. At the same time, investment laws offer sufficient scope and flexibility to care – via special structures – for the individual needs and requirements of professional investors.
The team at GSK Stockmann offers professional advice to clients who want to preserve or develop long-term potential in the funds industry and who require support with investment processes. Our client base on the offeror side is comprised of service providers including asset management companies and AIFM, asset managers, consultants, third-party distributors and other predominantly institutional investors such as banks, insurance companies and pension funds.

Our expertise in the fields of regulatory, taxes and product structuring in Germany and Luxembourg – two highly important markets for funds – enables us to focus on the essentials and offer you extremely targeted advice and support.
