Companies & SPVs: Formation & Administration

Companies and SPVs can pose a significant administrative burden across their lifecycle. From establishing the entity through the incorporation process and the ongoing entity management, Ocorian can help.

Shouldering the burden

We provide company and SPV formation and administration services to a wide range of corporate and financial institutions, often working on a global scale. Our independent and collaborative approach means we offer a tailored suite of products to meet your unique needs – whether the entity is regulated or not, listed or private, no matter the complexity.

What we do

Your company or SPV will need formation, incorporation and administration support. We can support those needs through the following services, and are flexible enough to tailor support to meet bespoke needs.

  • Company and SPV formation

Our team has vast experience in dealing with complex structures, and our services can cover all aspects of company formation including: searching for a company name, opening bank accounts, and coordinating between notaries and law firms to draft the company's deeds of association.

  • Registered office

We can provide a registered office for your company or SPV and support accounting needs through both maintenance of statutory records and safekeeping of those records. Our work on your company documentation is always in accordance with legal requirements, and we can even assist by dispatching the issuing documents and financial reports to relevant third parties.

  • Provision of directors or officers

We can provide experts in the relevant field to be appointed as directors on your board. Our nominee services  involve directors with many years of local knowledge and corporate governance expertise to ensure the smooth running of your entity.

  • Listed companies

Delivering a successful Initial Public Offering (IPO) is a significant task for any organisation and the list of required actions should not be underestimated. We act as a strategic partner to ensure you achieve a successful listing, taking care of all incorporation and administrative requirements.

  • Compliance and regulation

Company administration or SPV administration needs to be tightly run. We help you to put in place a strong and robust governance framework to suit your entity's regulatory environment.

  • Board portal solution

We use a platform called Board Intelligence - the leader in secure Board information technology - to collate and distribute your most sensitive Board material. Securely access a full library of materials at any time using a dedicated mobile application - you can review papers ahead of the meeting and make and share comments wherever you are in the world, all through harnessing the power of secure technology.

"Ocorian has supported us well with a range of services from the trust / SPV operating standpoint as well as the essential accounting and administrative support to ensure that we are not just in compliance with our financing requirements but able to meet and respond to the various needs of both our investors and lenders.

"Ocorian differentiated itself through the level of service and support it offered to meet our ongoing operating needs. Meeting the full team was important to both the RTI team and the preferred investors so that we understood the individuals and their capabilities given that Ocorian would become an extension of the RTI team."
