Angus Duncan is a partner in the Capital Markets Group, resident in the London office. His practice focuses on finance transactions with a particular focus on securitisations of a range of assets including loans, consumer receivables, real estate and hedge fund interests. Angus' practice also focuses on insurance-linked securities including catastrophe bonds, sidecars, industry loss warranties and privately placed transactions with respect to catastrophe, mortality and longevity risk using the capital markets.

He is consistently recognised by industry publications and independent commentators, such as Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners, as one of the leading securitisation, structured finance and derivatives lawyers in the world. The 2014 Chambers UK guide highlighted Angus' “substantial securitisation expertise” and his “experience advising on a range of asset classes, such as hedge fund interests, real estate and trade receivables.” Clients commented that he is a great guy who is very well connected with lots of good contacts.

Angus joined Cadwalader in May 2005, having spent 11 years at Allen & Overy, nine as a partner. He worked in Tokyo from 1996-2000, managing the office from 1998-2000. Whilst in Tokyo he was a leading participant in the capital markets and played a key role in the development of the Japanese securitisation markets. He sat on the board of the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan from 1998-2000.

In his structured finance practice he has worked on a number of market firsts including the first catastrophe bond transaction incorporating a tri-partite repo structure (Eurus II), Europe's first CRE CDO (Anthracite Euro CRE CDO 2006-1 p.l.c), the first European pro rata CLO (Harbourmaster Pro Rata I) and the first European CLO managed by a hedge fund (Grosvenor Place I).

Angus is a visiting lecturer to the LMA course at King's College, London where he has delivered a paper on insurance-linked securities. He is a frequent author for industry periodicals in the areas of insurance-linked securities and structured finance.
