More about Dugald
We work as your business partner so you can focus on what you do best. Our aim is to make the complex simple, bringing all the working parties and moving parts together in a single operational product. We focus on the elements you wish to combine in your fund as well as offering feedback for normal practice, unusual ideas and act as a sounding board for how the behind scenes work in practice.
I really enjoy the melding of scenarios, ideas and processes in getting the many aspects of a funds operations to work successfully in the real world. Every fund is different with different needs, aims and strategies. Dealing with the complexities of domicile, regulation, reporting, process and strategy then being able to combine it all into a single working product at the same time as helping our investment advisors is hugely satisfying.
