Custom House was established in Ireland in 1989 to provide a broad range of fund services to its clients. The group merged into Equity Trust on September 1, 2008, in effect becoming a joint venture between Equity Trust and the Custom House management. At that time, the holding company Custom House Global Fund Services was established in Malta. The company now has more than 260 employees and subsidiary offices in Chicago, Dublin, Guernsey, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Singapore.
Custom House Global Fund Services has launched The Nascent Fund Sicav, an open-end Maltese domiciled Sicav umbrella fund platform for managers wishing to start their own new fund and establish a track record.
