In the UK, we are unique.

We can offer all the principal closed-ended fund services, including fund administration and accounting, Company Secretary, registrar and Alternative Investment Fund Manager.

Our seamless services give investment managers clear and full ownership through cross-service co-operation and senior points of contact across the multiple specialist units. This model avoids any issues falling between different service providers or disputed around service demarcation lines.
