Hedge Fund Consultancy Sets Up Shop In London

May 10 2010 | 8:52am ET

KB Associates, a consulting firm to the asset management community, has opened an office in London to advise managers on establishing funds in regulated jurisdictions.

The firm specifically caters to UCITS funds, hedge funds, and funds of funds, and its services include providing advisory and project management support to managers domiciling funds in Europe.

Mike Kirby, principal of KB Associates commented, “The decision to establish a London office reflects two key trends. 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.”

KB Associates, which was founded in Dublin in 2003, is also considering opening offices in New York in the coming months.
