Hayfin’s special opportunities strategy €2.2 Billion Fund Raising

Macfarlanes has advised Hayfin Capital Management, a leading European credit platform, on its special opportunities strategy, which recently completed its latest fundraising process, attracting total commitments of €2.2bn.

Hayfin is a longstanding client of the firm, with Macfarlanes previously instructed to act on other core projects for the business from its establishment in 2009 to its recent direct lending strategy fundraise, which completed in March 2017.

Capital for this strategy has come from a number of new and existing institutional investors from across the globe, including private and public pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, and endowments.

The advisory team for Macfarlanes was led by investment management partner Alex Amos (Pictrue) and tax partner Damien Crossley, with Ed Prestwich in investment management and Alicia Thomas in tax assisting.
