Irish Funds for Japanese Investors

We advise on the establishment of Ireland domiciled UCITS and AIFs for Japanese promotors and investors.  In particular, we advise Japanese promotors that are looking to establish a UCITS or an AIF in Ireland to either raise capital from European and Asian investors or to acquire European assets.  We are experts on the establishment of unit trusts, the vehicle of choice for many Japanese investors and have increasingly established ICAVs (Ireland's specialised corporate fund) for Japanese managers.  Our tax, structured finance, corporate, employment and regulatory teams provide additional support when required by our Japanese clients, including in respect of the establishment of Irish downstream SPVs and holding companies.

We have legal and fiduciary specialists based in Asia, Europe and North America advising on such transactions from a convenient time-zone.
