Conclude the deal and manage risks in a pragmatic and timely manner.

The Derivatives practice team provide derivatives legal advice to funds and financial institutions. Leveraging on our experience and understanding of the market, we are able to provide pragmatic, commercial and timely advice.

We also provide regulatory advice concerning the current international derivatives reform. In doing so, we recognise the challenges facing investment managers in implementing regulation and keeping ahead of the curve in an evolving market. We aim to provide a clear view and guidance on those changes.

The practice advises funds from inception and throughout their life cycle. We provide advice on matters such as derivatives and structured finance transactions, prime brokerage agreements, trading documentation such as repo and stock lending and advice on asset custody arrangements, to global financial institutions and hedge funds. We aim to assist our clients with concluding the deal and with managing their risks.

To some, derivative transactions and dealing with counter parties can seem daunting. However, we aim to deliver in a calm, responsive and efficient manner.
