Investment management company providing compliance and operational support
As an FCA authorised entity and full-scope Alternative Investment Fund Manager (‘AIFM’), Brooklands acts as the management company (‘Manco’) to hedge funds, private equity funds, corporate finance advisors and other businesses wishing to carry out regulated activity in the UK. We leverage our expertise on financial regulation and investment operations to provide outsourced compliance and operational support to growing businesses.
Our service offering as a compliance management company includes the utility of a compliance team that will carry out regulatory filings and approve marketing documentation, guidance from an FCA authorised Compliance Officer and access to a centralised compliance portal for efficient completion of compliance related tasks.
As an operational Manco, Brooklands can manage day-to-day operational functions, including settlements, corporate actions, cash and collateral management, reconciliation etc.
AIFs, AIFMs and the AIFMD
Under the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (‘AIFMD’), an AIFM is an entity that provides portfolio management and risk management services to an Alternative Investment Fund (‘AIF’). Investment vehicles that raise capital from investors and invest this capital pursuant to a defined investment policy are likely to be defined as an AIF and will therefore need be fully compliant with the AIFMD’s provisions on portfolio and risk management, as well as marketing.
As a registered AIFM and dedicated management company to a variety of entities, Brooklands can provide the compliance and operational infrastructure necessary to ensure adherence to the provisions of the AIFMD.
If you are interested in establishing an AIF or an entity that will conduct any FCA regulated activities, please get in touch with the Brooklands team to learn more about what we offer as a boutique fund management company.
