KB Associates establishes London presence; predicts growth in regulated hedge fund assets

Related Topics

KB Associates, a consulting firm to the asset management community, has opened a new office in London’s Mayfair.

The new office will advise managers wishing to establish funds in regulated jurisdictions on operational issues including providing advisory and project management support to managers re-domiciling funds into Europe. It will also provide operational advice to London-based asset managers.

KB Associates was founded in Dublin in 2003 and provides a range of advisory and project management services to asset managers of UCITS funds, hedge funds and FoHFs; with a particular focus on Irish-domiciled funds.

“The decision to establish a London office reflects two key trends," says Mike Kirby, Principal of KB Associates. "Firstly the increasing interest of managers in establishing regulated hedge funds, which despite the hype around UCITS are often still being established as regulated non-UCITS funds. The second driver is the demand we see from new managers for advice on a range of operational issues critical to the successful establishment of an asset management business. Given these trends there is now a unique opportunity in the London market for a genuinely independent consulting firm such as KB Associates which focuses exclusively on servicing asset managers.”
