Investment & Pension Funds

The funds and investment management arena is a fast-moving and dynamic market which now incorporates a wide spread of services and businesses. In this increasingly regulated environment firms must continue to ensure they focus on building innovative strategies and strongly performing products to remain competitive. Choosing fund managers who will deliver consistent investment performance is proving ever more difficult in the current economic climate. We see both institutional and retail customers demanding greater robustness and also transparency in investment approach and performance reporting.

  • Traditional and alternative fund managers
  • Listed investment companies
  • Hedge funds
  • Open ended investment companies
  • Private equity funds

We provide advice to regular and offshore funds, their managers, owners and service providers, supporting them throughout the life cycle of their business.
