Whether their first fund, or the latest in a long line of launches, we routinely support managers in the intensive process of getting their new fund off the ground. Our services include: assisting with structuring, local regulatory applications and other fund documentation; establishing accounting policies and operational procedures; coordinating the execution of operating agreements; arranging for independent directors; and establishing fund bank accounts.
We take care of all aspects of the day-to-day administration of the fund, allowing our clients to focus on investment management and investor relations. Our services include: maintenance of principal corporate books and records; share certificate custody; transfer of ownership interests; providing statutory representation; arranging meetings of investors and directors; arrangements for annual audit; deploying funds in targeted investments; fund expense management; bank account administration.
Fund managers today face an increasingly complex set of compliance and regulatory obligations, both at an international and local level. Our range of regulatory compliance and AML-CFT services to assist investment funds and fund managers in complying with their statutory obligations includes: FATCA and CRS entity classification, registration, account holder identification and reporting; AIFMD (Annex IV) reporting; Cayman Islands compliance services, including provision of MLRO, DMLRO and AMLCO.
We understand that effective investor relations are a critical pillar for any fund manager. We provide efficient, accurate, high-touch investor services, backed by real time data transparency. Our core services include: investor onboarding and KYC; sophisticated online reporting and communication, tailored to industry standards; capital call and distribution management; investor liaison and query management.
Accurate and efficient accounting that our clients can rely on is fundamental to what we do. Our services include: maintaining full accounting and portfolio records; NAV calculation; financial statement preparation; maintaining investors’ capital accounts; tracking GP and LP allocations, and waterfall calculations; monitoring holding period, lock-up and sale restrictions; and fund manager fee calculations and payments.
We are also able to service a debt fund’s underlying assets directly by providing bookkeeping services at the asset level, debt covenant monitoring, and facility agent and security trustee services for new loan and bond transactions, as well as successor agency services for existing transactions.
