Fund Administration

Our services include all processes from NAV calculation and fund accounting to maintaining shareholder registers, whether  we are acting as the solely transfer agent for clients and partners or operating as paying agent. We also offer a full range of reporting options and are able to deliver reports upon request, whether online or in hard copy.

All our fund administration services are managed in-house, ensuring that we apply consistent standards and promote our culture of risk awareness across the whole value chain. Clients always have direct access to our industry experts.
