As the European investment funds market matures and fund promoters expand their business around the world, a strong transfer agent is increasingly recognized as a service differentiator.

The firm is one of the largest transfer agents in Europe employing over 400 operations staff across three locations: Ireland, Luxembourg and the U.K. We service the complex requirements of the largest and most demanding fund promoters in the world.
