navigator: securities

navigator: securities covers the key issues which are relevant to entities looking to offer and sell foreign securities Products (which have not been registered for public distribution in the jurisdiction) to local investors on a cross border basis.

The service covers the following Product types:

  • equity securities
  • debt securities
  • linked products
  • closed-ended and private equity funds* for non-EEA jurisdictions.

*For all EEA jurisdictions which have implemented the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive, closed-ended and private equity funds now fall within the scope of the navigator: funds service.

Available online on a subscription basis, the service currently covers over 115 jurisdictions and is based on information provided by local counsel that is reviewed and updated regularly, and has been critically analysed by our team of dedicated navigator lawyers.
