As a result of its premier offering in the region and continued expansion of its market-leading position, Maples Fund Services has been recognised at the MENA FM Services Awards for the fourth consecutive year. In addition to receiving the top honour as "Best Overall Administrator," Maples Fund Services was named "Best Fund Administrator - Private Equity" and "Best Fund Administrator - Sharia Compliant Funds." The annual awards were developed to highlight fund services providers in the region that have demonstrated exceptional client service and innovative product development over the past 12 months.
The recognition marks a significant milestone and is a testament not only to Maples Fund Services' strong performance, but also to the strength of the market in the MENA region which remains vibrant with steady growth in real estate, private equity, infrastructure and other alternative asset funds. Maples Fund Services has captured much of this growth across the Middle East with notable experience across a variety of strategies and structures in markets such as the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, among others. Additionally, Maples Fund Services has continued to expand its portfolio of clients that adhere to Sharia standards and has tailored its reporting standards to ensure on-going compliance.
Maples Fund Services' growth has been driven by its philosophy of continuous innovation and forward-thinking, the experience and expertise of its staff, unmatched approach to client service and commitment to remaining a consistent, stable, high-quality and high-touch service provider. As the MENA region realises further economic growth and fund managers continue to seek advice on how to address operational issues and the evolving regulatory environment globally, Maples Fund Services remains well positioned to maintain its exemplary reputation as the on the ground service provider of choice.
