Independent global service provider JTC Fund Services has established a Guernsey-licenced Management Company (ManCo) as it continues to strengthen its European fund services proposition.
Through the new Guernsey ManCo, JTC – which has had a Guernsey office since 2011 – will be able to support fund managers with a broad range of services including portfolio management, risk management, compliance and regulatory reporting.
The move significantly bolsters JTC's pan-European fund services capabilities and means it can now offer AIFMD-compliant ManCo services, both onshore and offshore, to UCITS and alternative investment funds.
JTC Group Head of Client Services, Funds & Corporate, Stuart Pinnington said high client demand was the driving factor in establishing a Guernsey ManCo, as the company will already have a pipeline to receive its services.
"We are now in a very strong position to provide one-stop outsourced solutions to our clients," he said. "Our management services give alternative investment fund managers some welcome optionality and allow them to focus on their core competencies, performance and enhance their asset values."
JTC Fund Services administers $60bn of fund assets and has a proven track record in administering both closed-ended and open-ended funds.
Its focus is on private equity, real estate, debt and hedge funds and it specialises in niche asset classes such as fine art, cryptocurrencies, technology, cleantech, infrastructure, transport and natural resources.
