Maitland gains Edinburgh foothold and £2bn AUA

Contract_handshakeMaitland, a fund administration firm, has acquired the Edinburgh-based R&H Fund Services, which mainly supports investment trusts.

The acquired firm was sold by its parent R&H Fund Services (Jersey) and has assets under administration of around £2 billion (€2.32 billion).

The deal brings Maitland’s assets under administation to £220 billion and gives it a foothold in the UK’s second largest financial services centre.

Steve Georgala, CEO of Maitland, said: “Given its importance as a regional financial centre, Edinburgh presented itself as a logical next step in our ambitious global growth programme."

Maitland said there would be no disruption for R&H staff, who will continue in their current roles.
