Funds Insider | Issue 9

banking background

    Welcome to the summer edition of Funds Insider, our quarterly publication focusing on hot topics across a wide range of practice areas of particular interest to private capital clients.

    This edition will cover:

    • European restructuring and insolvency - London as a European restructuring forum reigns supreme
    • The FCA’s new Business Plan – what it means for enforcement
    • European employment law - Sexual harassment: what do employers in Spain and the UK need to
    • Reform of Luxembourg Arbitration Law: how does it apply to your M&A
    • European long term investment funds (ELTIF) 2.0: a new era for private Funds sponsors?

    As the year progresses, dealmaking and fundraising across a number of key geographies have seen a considerable decline compared to previous years, partially due to pressures from high interest rates, recession fears and a weak outlook for corporate earnings. However, whilst some investors continue to exercise caution in their investment approach, with the ‘flight to quality’  dominating as the theme of the year when it comes to investment propositions, there is still a part of the market which looks to seize opportunities in key sectors, including infrastructure and energy transition, which are industries that are core to Ashurst’s strategy and which have indeed witnessed resilient activity levels since the start of the year.

    We hope you enjoy reading this edition of Funds Insider and please do get in touch if you have any feedback or if there are any topics that you would like us to cover in future editions.
