RPC launches guide to private equity fund restructurings

RPC and The British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (BVCA) have launched a new guide on private equity fund restructurings to bring clarity to this complex area.

RPC has produced the guide for fund sponsors, investors and investment professionals, going through potential scenarios that could require a private equity or similarly structured investment fund to restructure and what needs to be done.
The guide covers several issues including: Brexit; adverse fund economics; investor defaults; and manager distress.
The guide also details the liabilities and defences for asset managers when faced with litigation, as well as certain recent regulatory developments in the UK.
Anthony Shatz, Partner and Head of Investment Funds at RPC and lead author of the guide, says: “This guide aims to highlight some of the scenarios in which funds may need to be restructured, and the solutions to be applied in achieving such a restructuring.”
“Sponsors of investment funds may need to restructure an investment fund at any time and for a multiplicity of reasons. This is more important now than ever with Brexit creating significant legal uncertainty, especially for UK based funds with European investors.”
