Opus Fund Services has this week confirmed the official launch of its European fund administration business based in Dublin, Ireland, following a comprehensive application process resulting in authorization by the Central Bank of Ireland under the Investment Intermediaries Act.

Launched in 2006, the Opus proprietary-based technology offering continues to gain rapid traction, the firm says. To date it has focussed on the US market, adding 183 new funds across 133 new clients in 2018 alone.

Robin Bedford, Opus Global CEO, commented: "As we continue to scale our business, Ireland was the logical location of our European headquarters providing our existing clients with full access to the European Union. Our proprietary technology-based administration platform has been embraced by the US market resulting in our rapid growth. We look forward to deploying this offering to the local Irish market."

The existing team of 15 professionals are based in their Baggot Street offices. Christian Pollard, regional CEO, explained: "Having automated many of our back-office functions, our local hiring strategy will focus on targeting experienced fund administration professionals that can deliver a client experience previously out of reach for the average emerging fund manager."
