Apex Fund Services launched the Sydney office in April 2011 and is dedicated to help Australian fund and asset managers grow through a range of services offered to the funds and managed investment schemes.

Australia emerged from the global financial crisis stronger then the rest of the world, and is highly regarded as a financial centre with a well regulated funds management industry. Australian asset managers have also had a good performance but surprisingly have only recently begun to aggressively market themselves to attract global capital. It would seem that the opportunities in the offshore market (Asia- Pacific region and beyond) seem to have been under developed, given this solid regulatory framework and the good performance.

The Australian government has taken the right step forward to allow Australian fund managers to attract foreign capital with the implementation the Investment Manager Regime (IMR) which is to be back dated to July 2011. The IMR will provide certainty of tax treatment for the funds management sector, which in Australia has over $1.8 trillion of funds under management, and will further enhance Australia as a financial services centre.

With our two offices in Australia, and through the Apex global network, the team at Apex is dedicated to provide Australia’s asset managers with seamless access to the world's major financial centres and global fund solutions, delivered locally.

Apex now goes beyond offering services in Fund Administration, Hedge Fund Accounting, Fund Reporting, Fund Formation and Risk Management Reporting.
