      DMS Governance (“DMS”), the worldwide leader in governance + risk + compliance announced today that it has acquired Host Capital Limited, an independent Authorised Corporate Director (“ACD”), regulated in the United Kingdom (“U.K.”) by the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”). This acquisition, together with a strong and experienced team, allows DMS to expand its European products and bespoke solutions to asset managers operating U.K. regulated investment funds and provide tailored solutions to assist with any Brexit concerns.
