A seamless offering across the entire fund lifecycle

The number of new funds coming to market continues to accelerate year-on-year but the challenges in establishing and managing each fund remain. There are many considerations early on that need to be navigated; from which fund structure to use, to selecting the most appropriate domicile, to designing the right operating model and finding the right balance between internal and external resources.

When forming your fund, you’ll be focused on coordinating its launch, ensuring the capital-raising process runs smoothly and managing the ongoing day-to-day fund activity. All whilst remaining responsive to investor demands and keeping abreast with market changes and regulations.

And, as your fund reaches its maturity, whether it’s because you’ve realised your investments or because you’re looking to change your structure, you’re going to want the process to be as smooth and painless as possible.
