RELATED TOPICS​

Kinetic Partners, the global professional services firm to the asset management, banking and broking industry, has acquired AB Fund Services, the Luxembourg-based fund advisory firm.

AB Fund Services advises on regulatory and compliance requirements for investment funds domiciled in Luxembourg, with a particular emphasis on the risk management requirements of the regulator, Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier. It has an established reputation as a leading investment fund consultancy in Luxembourg, assisting funds in all of their infrastructure, risk management and operations needs.
 
Established in 2005, Kinetic Partners has grown rapidly to serve over 1,200 clients globally, providing a bespoke service for firms who need in-depth industry advice, analysis and valuation across borders.  The Firm currently has six offices in London, Dublin, Grand Cayman, New York, Geneva and Hong Kong.
 
Kinetic Partners’ expansion into Luxembourg, the second largest investment fund centre in the world after the US, will bolster the Firm’s presence in the major financial services hubs around the world, further enhancing the Firm’s global service offering for clients who increasingly operate in multiple jurisdictions.
 
The office will provide support for global and local financial services organisations operating in Luxembourg, with a strong focus on regulatory compliance and risk management services. The service offering will be extended to include corporate recovery and forensic services in due course.
 
Raymond O’Neill (pictured), a Founding Member of Kinetic Partners, says: “We are delighted to announce our acquisition of AB Fund Services and very much look forward to welcoming the team to Kinetic Partners and working together. The acquisition is in line with the Firm’s planned expansion strategy to open in new jurisdictions in response to the changing needs of our clients, who rely on our ability to operate seamlessly across borders. Expansion is a crucial requirement given the growing global nature of our industry and further strengthens the Firm’s leading market position within its chosen sectors.”
 
Benoît Andrianne, CEO of AB Fund Services, says: “We are very excited to be joining forces with Kinetic Partners, given their exceptional reputation as a high quality provider of advisory services to the finance industry. We look forward to working together to develop and grow our services to respond to clients who are operating in an ever complex regulatory environment.”
