Our Services

We specialise in boutique fund administration to alternative fund structures. Our geographic reach covers onshore and offshore pan-European funds. In addition to this, we support all of the legal vehicles which make up these complex structures including investment management and advisory vehicles, feeder and co-investment vehicles, carried interest and incentive schemes and private investment holding companies.

We don’t outsource and we understand what you need. You require a service partner who can offer a bespoke administrative solution, providing flexible and accessible reporting and assistance in the transparency demands of investors, regulators and fiduciaries. Our clients seek adaptable solutions to the operational challenges that they face. With this understanding, PEA delivers what clients want and need.
