Joep Bruins, CEO of Orangefield, which already boasts offices in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Caribbean, said, “We enter North America by providing hedge fund services for which we are already leading the industry. Partnering with Columbus Avenue sets us up for success in North America. It also creates a strong base for offering Orangefield corporate services to U.S. clients looking to establish and manage legal entities worldwide.”

Joe Holman, founder and managing partner of Columbus Avenue said, “Orangefield has a very broad portfolio in corporate services and fund administration in Europe and Asia, complementing Columbus’s focus on the hedge fund industry in the U.S. “

According to Holman, both companies’ views on applying innovative systems align seamlessly, even on a detailed level. “Like Columbus Avenue, Orangefield is walking in the forefront of applying cutting-edge technologies. I am pleased to say that we completely see eye to eye when it comes to knowing what is in the best interest of our valued hedge fund clients,” added Holman.
