The Problem

A multi-billion fund owned Fintech assets which, by way of their complexity, pulled the Fund’s own risk profile into the wrong tier. 

Those assets, and the management team to build value around those assets, had to leave the Fund (with all of the negotiations surrounding their departure) and rejoin a NewCo, to be listed – thereby joining on terms that met remuneration governance codes for UK listed enterprises The outgoing leadership (some of whom were senior partners in the Fund Management Partnershp) faced the creation of a wholly new incentive plan, to compare with their previous partnership opportunity, on a ‘blank canvas’, while satisfying governance requirements of new investors to an IPO
