Opalesque Industry Update: Today, Kinetic Partners, the global professional services firm to the asset management, banking and broking industry, announces its acquisition of AB Fund Services, the Luxembourg-based fund advisory firm.

The office will provide support for global and local financial services organisations operating in Luxembourg, with a strong focus on regulatory compliance and risk management services. The service offering will be extended to include corporate recovery and forensic services in due course.
