Manager Services

Our fund experts provide licensed manager services to investment funds where they are appointed as manager of the fund, typically with a mandate to wind down the fund’s portfolio whilst maximising recoveries for investors.  

This service offers a “softer landing” than the appointment of a liquidator, and allows the incumbent manager or board to retain some influence in the process, at their discretion.

Funds in wind down often require particular expertise, care and attention. This might be dealing with difficult valuation issues, challenging technical accounting matters or legal issues in respect of the equitable treatment of remaining investors. 

Our teams possess significant experience and technical expertise in the winding down of fund portfolios, particularly in the distressed hedge fund/fund of fund space, and have experience in dealing with high-profile contentious cases in the industry.

Estera has a proven track record providing this service and is experienced in the particular issues which arise in the administration of fund closures. Significant realisations have been made as a result of our management mandates where existing managers have been replaced to effect the orderly wind down of funds.

 Our service involves management of all aspects of the fund and its portfolio as well as a reporting function to stakeholders. Our teams can also provide due diligence services to investors in funds, for example in respect of distressed funds to analyse and provide a report on the condition and likely realisations from each subject fund.

We offer competitive and transparent fees, with terms tailored to the circumstances of each client and are able to offer a more cost effective and tailored fee alternatives.
