Delivering a fresh approach, Ipes is a multiple award-winning independent specialist provider of private equity fund services.
Ipes is a people business and the relationships our teams build with our clients are at the heart of our success to date. With the lifespan of a private equity fund generally around 10 years, clients want to work with an experienced and stable team of people they can relate to and rely upon.
Our 150 professionals administer more than $53 billion in assets for over 90 clients. More than 80% of Ipes people are qualified or qualifying, and our senior client-facing team averages 18 years of industry experience.
Your trust, our expertise. One partnership Our experience encompasses listed and unlisted entities, and our client base includes buyout funds, venture capital funds, fund of funds and mezzanine funds in the UK and across Europe. Over 90% of our new mandates are referral-driven.
Our clients tell us that our industry-leading technology sets us apart. Capital Tracker is a fully web-based platform and enables our clients to interact with us and share common data, view reports in real time and customise the system to suit their needs.
Ipes provides a comprehensive range of fund services, including:
• Fund administration
• Carried interest and co-investment schemes

Ipes is a multi-jurisdictional team, with offices in four European locations: London, Luxembourg, Jersey and Guernsey.
We are unique in that each of our locations is run as a full-service operation, staffed by Ipes people, working to Ipes process maps and using Ipes technology. In our view, we cannot rely upon third-party nameplate operations or jointventure arrangements to deliver the consistently high levels of service our clients expect.
