Fund Accounting Services

Our specialist fund accountants make sure that the fund’s reporting accurately reflects the underlying constitutional documents and the ongoing activities of the fund.

Our fund accountants will form part of a dedicated team and will work with you from the on-boarding phase to ensure appropriate reporting is developed to satisfy all the fund’s stakeholder requirements.

We recognise that every fund is different and there is not a 'one size fits' all solution. We work with you whether you are a new technology startup focused manager raising your first fund, or part of an established real estate group with a pedigree of performance to maintain, we will develop a full suite of account and financial reporting processes that are fit for purpose.

We work closely with other third-party providers (lawyers, auditors, tax advisors, property managers, etc.) to ensure a joined up service. By outsourcing the accounting and financial reporting the fund aims to ensure the financial information presented is consistent with the fund investor’s expectations. We will agree service level agreements (SLAs) upfront and closely monitor these throughout the fund’s life cycle.
