Polar Capital Case Study
15 YEAR WORKING RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CENTAUR TEAM HAS BEEN INSTRUMENTAL IN POLAR CAPITAL LLP’S STRONG GROWTH AS IT REACHES £10BN AUM
Since its inception, the Centaur team has been working with Polar Capital and has enjoyed a strong working relationship for over fifteen years. During this time, Polar Capital has achieved a healthy growth in Assets Under Management (AUM) that recently reached the £10bn mark (June 2017).
Polar Capital wanted to build a relationship with a firm that could provide tailored fund administration services to develop in line with its ambitious growth strategy.
Polar Capital is a firm that has a level of marketing and administrative support normally found in much larger organisations. Fundamental to Polar Capital’s core strategy is the provision of high levels of transparency to its clients. They needed an administrator that could deliver open and transparent reporting on a secure and reliable platform.
Polar Capital chose Centaur for its flexibility and scalability. Centaur has a deep understanding of each client’s specific needs and continuously adapts its solutions to suit Polar’s processes and reporting.
Polar’s focus on transparency is well established. They set high standards for themselves and small details matter. This attention to detail is matched by Centaur who have demonstrated a long term commitment and deliver excellent client service in an accountable and transparent fashion.
“Transparency is something that is close to our hearts. Technology still remains the most important element in ensuring greater transparency and more efficient reporting. Centaur fulfils this role with its technology platform, which is both scalable and secure. Our growth has been phenomenal over the last 15 years and Centaur has supported us well, offering services that grow in line with our business,” says John Mansell, Chief Operating Officer, Polar Capital.
He continues “Polar Capital’s strong results working with Centaur can be attributed to a deep understanding of the culture and internal culture of our firm. We have had a positive, constructive and value added relationship with the team of Centaur since our inception. It is a relationship that has and continues to work well today and will continue well into the future.”
