Welcome to the latest Taking Stock, our sector-specific newsletter offering global perspectives and updates on the private equity market.

As the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) rapidly progresses towards the January 1 2023 deadline, our team in Luxembourg provides an update on key events, regulatory developments and compliance deadlines for market participants. On the subject of increased transparency and the prevention of greenwashing, partners Kate Hodson and Joanne Huckle discuss what approach regulators in the Cayman Islands might take in the development of ESG in the alternative investment industry.

In recent news, a cross-jurisdictional team from Ogier advised Atairos group in a ground-breaking US$580 million take-private of Ocean Outdoor Limited - one of the first ever UK take-privates by way of BVI statutory merger. We also look how another tumultuous year for UK real estate investors is playing out with Korean investors.
