My clients Capital Markets Team ensures that ongoing statutory, legal and transactional/contractual obligations are fulfilled in respect of approx. 600 UK registered companies (Special Purpose Vehicles, "SPVs") used in about 250 transactions.

Each manager is responsible for managing, monitoring and completing the governance, compliance and corporate services obligations of their individual portfolio of SPV's (typically 100-120 SPV's).
