Hogan Lovells has assisted Timberland Investment Resources Europe on this operation.
This fund is one of a few on both sides of the Atlantic investing in timberland and forestry assets.
The law firm helped TIR, one of the few private investment management firms that offers investment solutions in the forestry sector, to set up a Reserved Alternative Investment Fund (RAIF). The Hogan Lovells team advised on the initial structuring of the fund, including tax, through to the first closing of the fund, which occurred in January 2020 for circa EUR 75 million. The current target is to double this amount by the end of the year.
The Hogan Lovells Luxembourg team was led by Pierre Reuter (Picture) and included Simon Recher (associate), Mathilde Soetens (trainee), with support from the London team led by Erik Jamieson (partner) and Ollie Phillips (associate). On the tax side, the team included Gérard Neiens (partner), Jean-Philippe Monmousseau (counsel), Pierre-Luc Wolff (senior associate), and Grâce Mfuakiadi (associate).
