Fund administration

Setting up and running an OEIC or AUT involves adherence to considerable regulation, administration and time. The specialist expertise and resources required to administer funds on a day-to-day basis mean that outsourcing this to an experienced third party is usually the preferred option.

Meeting your needs



What makes us different is how we treat and service our clients. It’s in our DNA to put the interests of our clients first, ensuring our business is driven by your needs. This will be reflected in the tailored service you will receive from our dedicated client servicing team.


We place highly experienced individuals within teams that have the ability to create effective and tailored solutions for our clients. These teams consistently deliver to the highest standards. What sets us apart from our competitors is that you will get to know these individuals within your dedicated client service team from initial set-up through to the day-to-day running of the fund.


We do not impose large minimum fund sizes and our fee structures are entirely dependent on the complexity of the fund and the total value of the funds under management. 


Understanding your needs, ambitions and challenges is central to our culture, so we will work closely with you and where appropriate your investment manager and other advisers.
