We believe adaptation and evolution are at the heart of success in an ever-changing financial services industry and because of this, we have positioned ourselves as one of the leading fund administrators in Gibraltar, dealing with both traditional asset classes and cryptocurrencies. We are committed to providing a first class service at a competitive price.

By setting up your fund with Abacus you will benefit from the following:

ROBUST GOVERNANCE

A fund should always be set up and administered in the best interests of all its stakeholders, including the fund promoter and the fund investors. Abacus is a regulated fund administrator and has been providing professional fund administration services since 2012. We understand the regulatory, compliance and operational duties concerning fund administration and offer you a simple solution so you, the fund promoter, can focus on the fund’s investment strategies and management with the peace of mind that you are running a fully compliant fund.

STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE

Our funds are well-administered in a timely and accurate manner. Strict procedures are in place to manage, monitor and administer each aspect of the process, from establishment to ongoing management. By engaging us to administer your fund, we work in consultation with you. We share our expertise, ideas and suggest practical solutions to guide you through the set-up process to achieve the successful launch of your fund.

LONG TERM RELATIONSHIPS

We value long term relationships with all our clients. By getting to know you and your fund objectives we are able to repeatedly offer you the best service, add value to your project and meet your specific needs.

CLEAR COMMUNICATION

We take the jargon out of funds and communicate to both the fund promotor and investors in plain English. Our aim is to provide clear, efficient and effective communications so that we can administer your fund to a high standard.

LOCAL PRESENCE

We are a Gibraltar based business and therefore have a full understanding of the local marketplace. Our excellent relationships with financial services providers and other stakeholders are invaluable to help us offer you the best possible service. As your first point of contact when considering whether to set up a Gibraltar fund, we introduce you to the entire range of industry professionals to assist with the establishment of your fund and we work with them towards the successful set-up of your fund. These include:

  • Our regulator
  • An independent panel of local legal advisers
  • Local EIF Directors
  • Local Directors
  • Local banks
  • Auditors
  • Tax advisers
  • Listing agents
  • Forex providers

With brand new offices in Main Street, we welcome individuals to come in and meet us and discuss their projects. There is no charge for an initial consultation as we strive to understand your requirements and assess how our services can be of benefit to you.

AFFORDABLE & TRANSPARENT PRICING

Our focus on the long term allows us to keep our fees low, which is especially important when the fund is in the early stages and high charges would result in less funds available for investment. Our fees grow proportionately as the investment fund grows, making it fair for the investors. Our pricing strategy has been designed with this in mind, as we understand that high set up costs before the fund has even began trading can be quite prohibitive.  All relevant fees are clearly shown at the outset in our fund proposal and engagement letter.
