REPORTING SERVICES
In an environment of ever increasing regulatory changes
and growing investor needs, we understand that timely and accurate reporting is essential for all stakeholders.
We meet our clients’ reporting needs, including the provision of financial, regulatory and tax reporting services:
Financial reporting
We prepare quarterly, semi-annual and annual financial statements. We work with external software vendors and have developed a bespoke application that prepares and compiles financial statements under IFRS and (Dutch, Luxembourg and US) GAAP.
Regulatory reporting
We directly provide the relevant regulatory bodies in the domicile of a fund with appropriate financial information in the required format and at the correct interval (as prescribed by law). In addition, we can assist fund managers in meeting their own certain regulatory requirements. This includes among others:
