North Star Corporate Finance was founded by Andrew Månsson-Lowe in 2012, an experienced entrepreneurial corporate finance professional with over 16 years direct corporate finance experience across multiple sectors and corporate finance disciplines.
North Star professionals have gained notable depth of experience in advising fund managers and their funds – launching and exiting a number of fund management platforms including Thames River Capital, Pacific Real Estate Capital Partners and Alpha Real Capital, together with direct advisory of numerous funds across multi asset classes. North Star also has demonstrable expertise in PLC advisory (Official List, AIM and Specialist Fund Market) as well as private equity M&A.
Key areas of recent project expertise include structuring and re-structuring property funds – both onshore (regulated and unregulated) and offshore, with significant experience in delivering complex projects across all aspects of commercial, financial, tax, legal, regulatory and administrative work packages.
North Star advised on the launch of the first residential ground rent Property Authorised Investment Fund, the Freehold Income Authorised Fund, working alongside the offshore trustee of the predecessor trust fund and the fund manager. North Star continues to advise the Fund (including projects such as conversion to a Non-UCITS Retail Fund, compliance with AIFMD and the restructuring of a complex corporate holding structure, tax efficiently) and has recently launched a market-leading commercial ground rent fund (for retail investors), under the same umbrella entity. North Star have deep relationships with the legal, tax and accounting professions, together with the Financial Conduct Authority.
North Star’s unique offering – bolstering your management team with expert experience on a project or interim basis – significantly reduces transaction risks, increases the likelihood of the successful delivery of the project or transaction and increases the efficiency of transactions in terms of both time and professional costs, whilst allowing key management to remain focussed on day to day operations. North Star work with a range of clients employing relevant professional partners where necessary to offer a diverse and complete range of Corporate Finance services.
