Our clients in Ireland trust us for our extensive industry experience and comprehensive suite of administration services. Led by local resident directors, we work closely with arrangers and intermediaries who choose to use Ireland for their transactions.

Our Services

Our main focus is on the administration of all types of capital market structures used in aircraft finance, securitisation, corporate debt funding, life settlements, holding companies and cross border financing. 

We also provide Employee Benefit Trustee services to a broad portfolio of clients, from small private businesses to FTSE350 and Irish Listed Companies.

Why Ireland?

Ireland is one of Europe’s leading onshore locations for financial services. The sector has continued to grow in recent years within the global financial market.

Ireland's advantages include a low Corporate Tax rate of 12.5%, a Double Taxation network, and a strong legal and regulatory framework. Being both tax efficient and a part of the EU, Ireland is an important market for major European financial institutions.

Ireland is also an increasingly attractive location for large corporates based outside of the EU.
