Real Deals shortlisting highlights Crestbridge private equity capabilities


Crestbridge’s strength in supporting pan-European private equity fund activity has been underlined with the business being named as a finalist in one of the industry’s most prestigious awards initiatives

Crestbridge has been included in the short list in the ‘Fund Administrator of the Year’ category at this year’s Real Deals Private Equity Awards, which recognise excellence, service quality and exceptional performance amongst European private equity houses, advisors and individuals.

Winners of the awards will be selected by an independent panel of judges and announced at a gala dinner on 24 April at the London Hilton Park Lane, an event that usually attracts around 700 industry professionals. 

Commenting on the shortlisting, Michael Newton, Group Head of Fund Services, Crestbridge, said: “We’re continuing to assert our capabilities for supporting European private equity flows by growing our proposition in Luxembourg, London and Jersey to complement our global offering through the Middle East and the Cayman Islands. Across our funds business last year, for instance, we grew our client base by an impressive 38% and in Jersey alone over the past five years we’ve almost doubled the value of funds we service.

“Being included as a finalist in these prestigious awards alongside the very best private equity houses in Europe is a reflection of that achievement and of the commitment we have as a team to delivering success to clients.”

With a 20-year heritage in financial services, Crestbridge offers a range of fund, real estate, corporate, capital markets and family office solutions. It serves a broad range of blue-chip corporate and institutional, UHNW and family office clients.
