Fund Administration Services

The administration of offshore and onshore funds represents one of our most important service areas. Our clients are international blue-chip corporate companies – including FTSE 100 companies, banks, pension funds, private equity and venture capital funds – and we currently have over US$60 billion of assets under administration across multi-jurisdictional structures.

We also provide Management Company (ManCo) services to fund managers of a broad range of regulated funds and structures. By taking care of your ManCo requirements, and ensuring full compliance with UCITS or AIFM for your fund, we aim to deliver complete peace of mind – for you and your investors.

What sets us apart is our experienced team, our flexibility and our solutions driven approach. We specialise in providing tailored services, and regularly partner with other financial institutions in order to help clients achieve their commercial goals. Our mission is to get it right first time.
