From investors in new funds to those invested in the secondaries market, we’ve been working with fund of fund managers of all sizes and investment strategies ever since our inception back in 2001.
What this means for you is that you can be sure we know your sector inside out. We know how different you are to traditional private equity companies – your portfolio contains a wide range of underlying assets, which helps you achieve broad diversification for your clients, but also results in a particularly high volume of transactions.
You require a team who can deal with the timely processing and bookkeeping of transactions. Often complex in nature, your transactions can span multiple structures and jurisdictions, and require additional diligence and an eye for detail. With our network of offices across some of Europe’s leading funds jurisdictions, you can be assured that we have the local knowledge and expertise to facilitate the regulatory and statutory compliance you require, while delivering an efficient administration service.
But it’s not just about the team. We back that team up with industry-leading technology which tracks and reports key financial information relating to your funds including the distinction between economic and accounting treatment, removing the need for excess ledger entries.
A high volume business like yours calls for a document management system which is easy to navigate and can be scaled and tailored to suit your needs. SharePoint is our data management system and we have a team of dedicated SharePoint analysts, who will configure the system to your exact requirements. Information can be tagged and filtered as needed and is then uploaded into client portals, placing the information you require at your fingertips, whenever you want it.
We understand how crucial it is that you maintain excellent relationships with the general partners of your underlying portfolios, and we take pride in helping you do this by responding to requests promptly and accurately.
We know our responsibilities don’t begin and end with processing requests. Our client-centric teams will draw on their broad experience of accounting, systems, compliance, corporate governance and company secretarial to work with you and provide you with insight into how to administer and account for certain transactions in a well-governed entity. We can also help guide you through secondary fund purchases, and the issues that this causes at take-on. Regulatory compliance continues to be complex and our experienced team prides itself on its expertise in each of the jurisdictions in which we operate.
One of the areas where our offering really stands out is our portfolio monitoring and reporting service. Recognising that standard manager reporting will often give only an overall view of performance, what we do is help you “look through” your funds to the level of the underlying portfolio companies. Our goal is to give you a complete picture of your exposure to different sectors, industries and geographies, so you can make more informed investment decisions.
We understand that every firm is different, and that one size doesn’t fit all. That’s why we work with each and every client to build a dedicated team of specialists around their exact requirements. With over 15 years’ experience of working with some of Europe’s best known fund of funds firms, you can be confident that whatever your needs, we will find the perfect solution for you.
