EY Webcast Friday, June 7 | Structuring of European Direct Lending Funds (11 am EDT)

Asset managers continue to crowd into the Direct Lending space. Despite enormous global tax changes over the past four years, Luxembourg and Ireland continue to be the primary holding platforms for Direct Lending into the European market. This webcast provides the tax and non-tax considerations to assist asset managers in choosing the right platform for their operations.

In the asset management space, the current lending and investment climate is ripe for Direct Lending funds. Borrowers continue to seek sources of nontraditional funding, while institutional and other sophisticated investors continue to be attracted to the strong returns in this particular asset class.

During this session, we will discuss the latest trends and practical matters including:

  • Overview of direct lending markets in the US and Europe and typical structures
  • Considerations for choosing Luxembourg or Ireland as operational platforms
  • US tax perspective on structuring considerations

Date: Friday, June 7 2019

Time: 11:00 a.m –12:00 p.m. EDT New York
