27 Jun 2024


Maples and Calder, the Maples Group's law firm, is pleased to have advised Pantarei Asset Management Limited ("Pantarei"), a Hong Kong-based investment manager, in connection with the launch of its inaugural funds, Pantarei Offshore Feeder, Pantarei Onshore Feeder, and Pantarei Master Fund.

Pantarei is an alternative asset manager that employs a multi-strategy approach across a broad range of financial instruments to capitalize on global market opportunities.  Rob Toresco, Founder and CIO, and John Langford, Partner and COO, lifted their investment team and strategy out of Evo Capital Management Asia Limited to found Pantarei in 2023.

A team of Funds & Investment Management lawyers based in the Group's Hong Kong office acted as Cayman Islands counsel to Pantarei. The team was led by head of the Asia Funds & Investment Management practice, Ann Ng and assisted by Associate, Adam Sinclair.

"The Hong Kong investment funds market continues to strengthen. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Pantarei to help execute the launch of its inaugural funds," commented Ann Ng. "As a new client to the firm, we look forward to continuing our relationship with Pantarei and supporting their team on more exciting opportunities in the future."

The Maples Group has one of the largest offshore Funds & Investment Management teams in the Asia Pacific region with specialist lawyers based in both Hong Kong and Singapore providing on the ground support to investment managers in the region. The team has advised some of the most successful managers in Asia on not only fund launches, but also on high-profile portfolio investments and divestments, secondaries deals and top-tier restructurings.
