Fund accounting services are provided to fund managers, pension funds, insurance companies, and banks that require a comprehensive range of fund administration services in the United Arab Emirates and major offshore jurisdictions, such as the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, and Ireland).
We have also witnessed tremendous growth in the use of an Offshore Company based in the Jebel Ali Free Zone and the International Business Company based in the Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority as a preferred choice for forming an investment holding company to engage in investments in the Middle East and throughout the world.
Fund accounting typically requires reporting to a large number of stakeholders, in particular mutual funds in which the investors in the fund may number more than 50. This requires an established system in place in order to ensure that all investors are able to receive the fund reports in a secure, internet-based format on a timely basis.
In addition, the fund investments will need to be marked to market based on the requirements of IFRS 9. As such, knowledge and practical expertise in performing valuations are essential to accurately recording the fair market value adjustments on a monthly or quarterly basis depending on the legal status and nature of the fund.
Comprehensive Time-Tested Solutions
As the fund administrator, we can assist with the following functions:
- Computation of the net asset value (“NAV”)
