JTC Group’s funds arm has invested in an IT platform, FrontInvest, to bolster its capabilities in the funds sector.
The platform, provided by eFront, follows best practice processes and systems and helps to ensure that JTC Group can fulfil regulatory, financial and tax reporting requirements for its growing roster of fund clients.
JTC Group’s international funds team administers both closed- and open-ended funds established in Guernsey, Jersey and Luxembourg, as well as other non-domiciled fund structures in financial centres, such as the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands.
Its expertise and scope has been enhanced by the purchase of Guernsey-based Ardel Fund Services in April last year, as well as Anson Fund Managers, which has offices in both Guernsey and the UK, in December.
Miranda Lansdowne, group director – fund services, at JTC Group, says: “This has been a period of rapid growth for the funds team, boosted last year by the acquisitions and the opening of an office in the US, the latter move serving as a gateway into Latin America. Investment in this market-leading IT platform supports our international growth strategy and has the flexibility we require as we deliver an increasing range of cross-border fund services.”
Paul Wheeler, chief operating officer at eFront, says: “The alternative fund administration industry has been and continues to be a key strategic market for eFront. We are very pleased to have expanded our presence in the Channel Islands and Luxembourg through this partnership with such a fast growing, focused and professional organisation as JTC Group.”
