Our expertise

We provide services to a variety of asset managers across an increasingly diverse range of asset classes. Our clients operate a range of business models including fund management, delegated investment management and advisory.

Many of our team have worked in the Asset Management sector and they understand the regulatory challenges they face. We can help asset managers to determine how their service or product is categorised, who they can market to and how to manage their regulatory obligations. This hands-on approach ensures they achieve their desired outcomes and is the primary reason why many of our clients stay with us for years and recommend us to others.
