Pension Funds, Investment Funds and Private Equity

Transactions involving investment funds and private equity players represent a large proportion of the most noteworthy deals in Chile, a trend that is increasing and extending to new fields every year. Our firm has been at the forefront of this process, advising owners, sponsors, managers and participants in national and foreign investment funds.

Our services to investment funds range from the creation and establishment of new funds, the setup of the managing companies, and support throughout the corporate life of each fund, to the legal advice for all types of investments, acquisitions, joint ventures, divestments and other transactions. We bring together the experience and skills of our corporate, banking and finance, and tax teams to provide the best advice to our clients in the structuring of their funds and investments.

We are leaders in our work with private equity and venture capital firms, accompanying our clients through a changing environment of financial rules and requirements of higher levels of control and transparency. From advice on the early stages of investment strategies and tax-efficient structures, to the execution and implementation of all aspects of their transactions, including every step in the life-cycle of each investment, we offer a comprehensive service to cater to the specific needs of the client.

Pension funds and their managers are active players in the M&A and financial markets in Chile, subject to complex regulation and requirements. We advise pension fund managers, their owners, and the listed companies in which they invest on the scope and application of that regulation, and provide support in structuring and completing transactions involving pension fund resources and the divestment of such investments.
