Company Secretarial Services (CoSec)

From supporting first time fund managers to assisting with stock exchange listings, our global team of qualified company secretaries help relieve internal pressures so you can focus on building value.

Set your business apart with sound governance

Regulations and legal and entity governance standards are evolving at pace whilst the risks of non-compliance for both organisations and individuals are considerable.

With deep knowledge of both listed and private funds, our experienced company secretaries help manage and comply with your fund’s legal and regulatory obligations, whilst ensuring the highest levels of governance.

From renewable energy and intellectual property to space technology and exploration, we work with a broad range of multi-jurisdictional alternative investment funds and corporations to alleviate the administrative challenge  of changing rules and regulations.
