Ireland’s financial services sector is a vibrant sector with a multitude of internationally focused financial services firms utilizing various forms of EUR passports. This represents a unique opportunity for an internationally focused firm like HK&P Ireland.

Ireland’s fund management model is complex and, in some ways, inefficient, automation should lead to more efficient operational controls. While the industry awaits full automation of the majority of the routine fund services, there are still many ‘routine’ services that are causing headaches or should still be replaced by an automated solution, which should be integrated in an existing situation, causing other headaches.

As we are now fully operational, we are looking forward to meeting you! We are very keen to listen to your stories and the questions and issues you may have on a day-to-day basis. With our vast experience and our proven skills and competences, we are certain we can assist you; we would love to tell you about our quality delivery and introduce you to our quality people.
