Ifina offers global start up alternative traders access to fund structures

Beverly Chandler, Opalesque London:

Derek Adler

Derek Adler brought 30 years of experience in the City of London, specifically in the derivatives markets and asset management creating portfolios of CTAs and foreign exchange traders to his business Ifina, where he is the founder member and director of business development. Ifina is a multi-jurisdictional group of companies, providing investment fund formation and administration and valuation services for investment funds, domiciled in all of the major offshore centres... The firm has assets under administration in excess of $1.8bn.

"We'll take on board anything no matter how small down to about a million" Adler says.
