Compliance with local laws. You have the comfort of knowing that legal requirements impacting all aspects of registration and compliance for UCITS and AIFs are being monitored. We also provide regular updates on the latest legal and regulatory changes affecting your funds as well as ongoing reporting on publication requirements, changes to reporting requirements or other pertinent issues.
Flexible, tailored service. World Passport allows secure 24/7 access for you and your team, with unlimited “view only” access by anyone in your organization. You also maintain control over the type of data you receive and the way it is formatted based on your preferences.
The choice is yours. Whether you already have preferred foreign counsel, wish to tap into Dechert’s foreign counsel relationship network or locate other counsel to use, it is entirely up to you. Our service can be tailored to your distribution requirements and is transparently priced.
