      Waystone, a leading provider of specialist services to the global asset management industry, is now the number one third party ManCo in Ireland and the fastest-growing third party ManCo in Luxembourg measured by AUM.

      Waystone’s number one position in Ireland reflects the company’s continued growth year-on-year, achieved through strong service performance and strategic expansion. Waystone’s success and comprehensive client offerings are bolstered by its ongoing investment in people, products, and market-leading technology.

      Elsewhere, PwC’s 2024 Barometer identified Waystone as the fastest growing third party ManCo in Luxembourg with 37% growth year-on-year, and the second most active launcher of RAIFs in the market, with 15 established in 2023 alone. The report also revealed Waystone’s move from 7th to 5th in the ranking of third party ManCos measured by AUM.

      These latest statistics underline the strength of Waystone’s position across Europe fortifying the Group’s footprint in the region and continuing to build upon its already significant European presence.

      Sanjiv Sawhney, Waystone’s Global CEO, said: “Our focus on delivering top-tier third party management company services has been a key element of our global growth. With our extensive global footprint, comprehensive product suite and breadth of expertise, we’re well placed to grow our presence in these leading hubs for fund management.”

      Rachel Wheeler, Global Product Head for Regulated Fund Solutions, added: “Ireland and Luxembourg are resilient markets, demonstrating robust growth in alternative investments. Our accomplishments attest to the quality of our highly specialised products and teams, who consistently deliver for our clients and foster a culture of excellence.”
