Leading Luxembourg fund servicing company sets up in Dublin to capitalise on Brexit-related 'significant rise in UK-based deal flows' Back
January 30th 2017: In a move that will further deepen Ireland's investment funds servicing offering, Luxembourg's FundRock, a leading independent UCITS management company and alternative investment fund manager is to open a branch in Dublin. The move comes as a result of market uncertainty in the investment management sector post-Brexit and is in response to clients looking to move their funds to Ireland.
FundRock Management Company S.A. (FundRock), the fund management company and alternative investment fund manager is to open an office in Dublin. The Dublin operation will be headed up by Ross Thomson, who has nearly twenty years of fund industry experience in Luxembourg and Canada. FundRock has also made two initial hires from the Dublin market in order to strengthen their local presence, knowledge and relationships and is committed to significant investment into the Irish market as part of its long term growth strategy in this region.

Following the market uncertainty created in the investment management sector post-Brexit, FundRock is opening an Irish office to service their clients’ needs and capitalise on the significant rise in UK-based deal flows.
Revel Wood, CEO of FundRock commented:“The move to Ireland is a crucial part of our long term strategy, and being a client led organisation, we have responded to client demand, to accommodate their needs, especially those looking to move their funds to Ireland. This expansion into Ireland aligns with our ambition to offer service excellence to a global client base by providing a value added solution for all their domestic fund management needs across Europe.”

The move into Ireland will be complemented by FundRock’s recently announced agreement to purchase, subject to regulatory approval, Fund Partners Ltd, one of the UK’s leading independent ACD. This will further enhance FundRock’s European presence and will offer clients a substantial, well-capitalised solution with deep and broad expertise in all the major European fund jurisdictions.

Ross Thomson, who has been FundRock’s Director of Operations Oversight for four years in Luxembourg, and has a wealth of experience in the hedge fund business said: “Opening an Irish branch is an exciting move for us given the strength of the market here and the quality of local service providers. As part of the firm’s expansion, we are committed to helping our clients succeed in Ireland, not least with the opportunities that Brexit could provide,” he added.
