Transfer agency

Trusted shareholder services administering the full needs of your investors and other key stakeholders.

Transfer Agency

Our team is responsible for the on-boarding and maintenance of all fund registers, oversight of anti-money laundering documentation, dealing, settlement, distributions and re-registration activities.

The core system, and highly scalable solution, used within the team is the Rufus (SaaS) package and integrated Babel STP messaging platform, both developed and supported by Bravura Solutions. We support faster, more efficient dealing via Calastone and EMX.

We now utilise Euroclear UK & Ireland’s (EUI’s) investment funds service (in CREST), facilitating integrated electronic settlement and account reconciliation for transactions received via both STP or manually. With one net daily GBP settlement for all CREST participants, it reduces operational and counterparty risks and gives certainty of settlement.

Our highly personal services can also include additional reporting tailored to your specific needs.


You will have access to a dedicated in-house team with specialist expertise and any enquiries will be responded to quickly and efficiently. You will be able to speak directly to a member of the team using our dedicated telephone lines for investor dealing queries.


Smith & Williamson Fund Administration was established over 30 years ago and today administers over 170 funds with £13.5bn assets under management (as at 31 March 2019).


The team has significant operational experience ensuring that any advice given is based on live, relevant understanding and leading technical expertise.
