Now in its 11th year, the Funds Europe Awards recognise personal and company achievements and contributions within the European funds community. Ipes has been shortlisted as Specialist Fund Administrator of the Year in the Support category of the Funds Europe Awards 2015.
Ipes’ submission focused on new business wins, innovation and contribution to the industry during the year ending 30 June 2015. Across this period Ipes supported clients through the Foreign Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) Annex IV reporting by providing an automated and systemised solution which reused data rather than requiring separate input for different reports.
Ipes Chief Executive Chris Merry said, “This was a busy period for Ipes. Being shortlisted for this award is recognition of the achievements and effort of our team. In January 2015 we filed over 220 AIFMD (Annex IV) reports in seven European jurisdictions on behalf of 35 managers. For FATCA we classified 953 entities, contacted 3,622 investors and filed 675 returns before the 31 May 2015 UK deadline.”
The winner will be announced at the awards ceremony in London on 26 November 2015.
