If my SPV is structured as a Nano-container (UK Bare Trust):

  • Legal ownership of the SPV assets will be with the trustee (Vauban Nominees Limited). However, its important to note that the investors will be the beneficial owners of the SPV assets. The investors hold SPV interest which signifies their holding percentage in the SPV and is proportional to their capital contributions.

If my SPV is structured as an LLP (Limited Liability Partnership):

  • The LLP will be the legal owner of the assets of the SPV however, the investors are still the beneficial owners of the assets. The investors hold LLP interest in the SPV which signifies their holding percentage in the SPV and is proportional to their capital contributions.

If my SPV is structured as an Overseas SPV (BVI Limited Partnership) :

  • The SPV in this case will be the legal owner of the assets and the Limited Partners are the beneficial owners. The investors hold LP interest in the SPV which signifies their holding percentage in the SPV and is proportional to their capital contributions.

If my SPV is structured as an English LP (English Limited Partnership):

  • As mentioned above, the SPV in this case will be the legal owner of the assets, and the Limited Partners are the beneficial owners. The investors hold LP interest in the SPV which signifies their holding percentage in the SPV and is proportional to their capital contributions.

If my SPV is structured as a Single Fund Feeder (UK Bare Trust):

  • The trustee, a limited company formed on your behalf, will legally own the SPV assets. However, the investors will be the beneficial owners of these assets. Each investor's SPV interest represents their ownership percentage in the SPV, correlating with their capital contributions.
