Matthew Bobrow is an associate in the Corporate Transactions group and part of our Private Equity & Investment Funds team in the firm’s New York City office. Matthew advises private investment funds, public pension funds, and institutional investors on private equity investments and fund structuring.
As part of the Private Equity & Investment Funds team, I represent investors and sponsors throughout all stages of a fundraise including fund formation, the offering process, side letter negotiations, placement arrangements, secondary transactions, and regulatory and governance matters.
Before joining the firm, I practiced as a corporate attorney, counseling emerging growth companies and small startups on how to raise private capital; complete an acquisition, merger, restructuring, and/or sale; and conduct a de-SPAC or an initial public offering, including completing related public filings. In addition, I have advised a number of well-known sponsors and investors, including one of the world’s largest investment fund sponsors and several of the nation’s largest and most active institutional investors.
Changes to the U.S. Federal Reserve’s interest rate policy will likely mean a recalibration of funds’ investment objectives, including a pullback from emerging markets and other risky asset classes, given the increased yield investors will be able to find in the U.S. domestic market. Certain areas that are currently in focus, such as Europe, will remain. Expected changes to the U.S. tax code and increased international tax cooperation will not materially deter investment unlike global political risks stemming from the Russian presence in Ukraine. The tax changes will likely prevent the use of some well-known strategies and will lead to the creation of new ones. Overall capital raising and deal activity should continue at a steady clip as the market continues to produce displaced opportunities as a result of the global pandemic.
