Omni Partners LLP, a UK-based alternatives specialist investment manager, has selected Maples Fund Services as administrator for its new Omni Secured Lending Fund I LP. The new fund will allow institutional investors to directly access the short-term secured property lending market within the UK.
Maples Fund Services will provide full administration services, including fund accounting and registrar transfer agent services. Maples Fund Services was awarded the business due to its strong expertise and experience in working with credit funds, as well as its customisable approach and sophisticated infrastructure to manage such structures.
“Maples Fund Services presented a cutting edge approach to servicing a hybrid structure like ours, and the team demonstrated considerable expertise in the administration of private debt funds,” Graham Rodford, Chief Operating Officer of Omni Partners, said. “The firm’s long-term view of client relationships as well as its close connection with Maples and Calder were key considerations in our decision to partner.”
Omni Partners was founded in 2004 by trading veteran Steve Clark. It currently manages two other funds in addition to the new Omni Secured Lending Fund I LP, which launched on 3 February.
“Our new relationship with Omni Partners is a testament to our ability to deliver the experience, technology and processes to service complex credit structures,” Stephen Lewis, Director European Business Development at Maples Fund Services, said. “We look forward to working with Omni Partners as the fund grows.”
