With decades of experience, highly qualified experts, a global network and cutting edge technology, HELMS is able to provide efficient end-to-end comprehensive support. HELMS typically assists early-mid stage fund managers to establish their own funds, whilst enabling them to retain strategic independence through outsourcing issues such as; set-up of corporate structure, administration, compliance with regulation, middle office/operations, risk monitoring/management, client inquiry management, etc. HELMS will ensure all of your requirements are met with a bespoke approach, thus allowing managers to focus on generating alpha.
Our Services provides a full range of tools that are needed (from front to back office support and solutions) to enable early stage managers to manage their own strategies and be part of an Emerging Managers Platform that can leverage individual experience. We propose a variety of packages, including basic, advanced or tailored solutions depending on your Fund needs. We work with each manager as a partner and our goal is to really add value and improve overall risk-adjusted returns and investment transparency for their fund. We monitor and advise on all relevant concerns that may arise, allowing them to be solved quickly and as one point of contact, efficiently, avoiding any need to wind down a fund.
