We are often asked what we are seeing in the Irish funds market. To assist our clients to make informed decisions on Irish projects, we have conducted a statistical analysis on every fund that we have helped launch since 2012. We have analysed key terms from each of the funds to identify the trends set out in this analysis. All information is collected on a strictly confidential basis and does not disclose client names or commercially sensitive data.
