The Regulated Funds sector has experienced explosive growth in the last decade. The demands of investors and regulators for greater transparency and accountability has driven growth in structures such as UCITS. It has also created an ever increasing regulatory net that has put more and more managers under some level of regulatory burden.
At Centaur, we have driven the development of regulated fund services over the last decade. With offices in Europe, North America, Cayman and Bermuda, we provide our clients with the expertise that makes the regulatory workload as efficient and robust as possible across multiple jurisdictions and regulatory environments.
Centaur provides full administration solutions for regulated funds, including:
1. UCITS SERVICES
Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS) are investment funds, regulated at a European Union (EU) level.
The success and evolution of the UCITS directive has created one of the most recognizable and one of the largest investment products for European investors. The directive provides protections to investors through strict rules around structure, risk and reporting. This provides investors with peace of mind and is the key to its success. For managers though, there is a significant reporting burden for what is a strongly regulated product.
As a European based firm, Centaur has worked within the UCITS regime since its inception. For fund managers looking to access this sizeable market, Centaur provides the complete suite of administration solutions that combines our experience working with UCITS funds and the flexibility of being an independent firm that works with clients to fit their needs.
