Fund Services

We provide fund services to some of the best known names in the Venture Capital world. Our clients can focus on what they’re best at: doing deals.

Operating in a heavily regulated industry can be complex, costly and time consuming.

As a fully integrated venture capital services provider, we have a unique insight into the fund raising process understanding the challenges as well as the opportunities for our Fund Services clients. That is why we are able to offer expert and practical advice based on real funds experience, with over £236 million raised over the last 10 years and currently over £50 million under management on own funds.

As our fundraising team sit in the same office as our administration team, our client service really is a full service. If we also provide our Fundraising services to you, we can help right from the early first sales call to receiving and processing the application, through to ongoing Fund Management and reporting – creating a seamless streamlined process for your investors.

Using our deep industry knowledge and experience, we provide an end-to-end range of administration and custodial solutions to our clients – both big and small. See below for a summary of our Fund services, but get in touch if you’d like to find out about a tailored solution.

Custodian Services

Choosing the right firm to be your custodian is key to successful operations and development of your business.

Often the first port of call for investors or their advisers, the receiving agent has a large impact on the overall investor experience.

Risk Warning

Our investment products may place your capital at risk and the value of them may go down as well as up and an investor may not get back the amount they invest. Investments in unquoted early stage/small companies and funds that invest in these smaller companies, including but not limited to, the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS), Enterprise Investment Schemes (EIS), Venture Capital Trusts (VCT), Social Investment Tax Reliefs (SITR) and are high risk and you should not invest unless you can afford total loss or if you are likely to require the capital in the near term since such investments can be difficult to realise.

The tax treatment of the investments depends on the individual circumstances of each investor and may be subject to change in future. The availability of tax reliefs depends on the Company invested in maintaining its qualifying status.
