Fund Services

Introduced by Claire Stapleton,
Group Head of Real Assets

Whether you’re outsourcing all or some of your accounting, administration or investor services requirements, it’s a big decision and one you need to get right. You’ll want to ensure that the credentials of the service provider measure up, from their track record with clients and the quality of their systems to the expertise and experience that exists within their team.

Ever since our inception in 2001, we’ve made it our goal to deliver a truly relationship driven service. At the heart of our approach is a simple philosophy – to build our teams, our systems and our processes around clients’ needs. This desire to deliver a truly tailored service is more than just a statement, though – it is something that continues to be recognised by clients and peers alike, evident through our award-winning status and a client retention rate that stands among the best in the industry.
