Equiom launches manco in Ireland

Posted: 04/01/2021

Kevin Bardon_Equion Ireland_jan21Following the recent acquisition of a management company platform in Ireland, Equiom has launched a 'super-manco' for fund managers.

The new business, Equiom Fund Solutions (Ireland), offers fund managers AIFM and UCITS solutions for regulated funds looking to raise capital from investors in the EU. 

According to Equiom, this is one of the first to be authorised under the Central Bank of Ireland’s revised CP86 guidance on fund management company effectiveness.

The firm will be led by Kevin Bardon (pictured), who takes up the role having overseen Deutsche Bank's Irish super-manco platform since 2017. 

Kevin has more than 30 years’ experience in the funds sector and has held senior positions at CITCO and State Street across the UK, US, Germany and Ireland. 

Equiom Chief Executive Officer Mark Porter commented: "Expanding our Dublin office represents a strategic investment into our institutional fund solutions capability. 

"In a complex regulatory environment, where substance requirements and effective oversight are increasingly important for investors, this acquisition will position us as a key partner for sophisticated client needs."

The name of the acquired business has not been disclosed.
