Launch of Laven Partners Global Fund Distribution Desk


Laven Partners launched today its ambitious Global Fund Distribution Desk, which includes a unique solution to distribute foreign funds in Europe in a post-AIFMD environment and which will also facilitate distribution where Laven Partners has offices : Switzerland, Singapore and the USA.

The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) and its transposition into 28 national laws introduce a brand new layer of regulatory requirements not only for EEA-based managers but also for non-EEA businesses. American, Asian and other non-EEA managers interested in raising assets in Europe must closely monitor AIFMD developments and related implementations in the various European countries.

Laven Partners’ Global Fund Distribution Desk offers managers a unique and dedicated platform to facilitate the registration of non-EEA Alternative Investments Funds (AIFs). It will also coordinate assistance for ongoing reporting obligations. The service is now available for any non-EEA Alternative Investments Fund Manager (AIFM) wishing to market their AIF in the EU and Switzerland to qualified investors.

Jerome Lussan, CEO, Laven Partners, comments: “We believe we are the only firm at present focusing on real distribution issues and offering this one-stop-shop service for non EU managers. We know that they are struggling with post AIFMD distribution and that most of them, including service providers, are currently opting for a “wait and see” approach. Laven Partners has put together a pragmatic solution relying on packaging solutions using our compliance, operational and legal consultants across the world. We think this service confirms Laven Partners’ unique position as a consultancy that combines both legal and operational knowledge to deliver services that are pragmatic, reliable and conclusive for clients, both in terms of results and costs.”

The Laven Partners Global Fund Distribution Desk will also include solutions to distribute in the US (via broker-dealer arrangements) and in Singapore via registration with the MAS.
The Global Fund Distribution Desk was set up to address increasing complications for managers to monitor and keep up with ever changing regulatory requirements to distribute their funds on an international level. The aim of the Laven Global Fund Distribution Desk is to provide direct assistance to register funds for local distribution, as well as to provide pragmatic guidance and strategic advice. It will be headed by Managing Director Petra Hollis.

Fee details available on request.
