Special Purpose Vehicles

Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) help securitise assets, create joint ventures, isolate corporate assets, or perform other financial transactions. They may be designed for independent ownership, management and funding purposes. ​

At Vistra, we have extensive experience of establishing and administering SPVs in a wide range of sectors – helping real estate clients hold assets and private equity clients structure their investments. We also support offerings in wider capital markets, including those related to asset-backed securities. ​

Beyond the initial establishment of SPVs, we can deliver a suite of related services to administer them – forming legal entities, opening bank accounts, and providing company secretarial, directorship and fiduciary services, and book-keeping and financial statements.
