It also creates a strong base for offering Orangefield corporate services to US clients looking to establish and manage legal entities worldwide.”

Joe Holman, Founder and Managing Partner of Columbus Avenue “Orangefield has a very broad portfolio in corporate services and fund administration in Europe and Asia, complementing Columbus’s focus on the hedge fund industry in the US. “ According to Holman, both companies’ views on applying innovative systems align seamlessly, even on a detailed level. “Like Columbus Avenue, Orangefield is walking in the forefront of applying cutting-edge technologies. I am pleased to say that we completely see eye to eye when it comes to knowing what is in the best interest of our valued hedge fund clients,” concludes Holman.
