Investment funds

The audit of financial statements is key to regulation of investment funds, both onshore in the UK and Ireland, and offshore in the Cayman Islands and elsewhere. We work with our clients and their fund administrators across the globe to meet the regulators’ deadlines.

We have experience of all types of fund investment strategy and structure and the capability to re-price quoted investment portfolios. We work through the various time zones using our combined London and Cayman team.
