By bringing the two businesses together, Reference is almost doubling its size in terms of turnover and staff.

Our aim is to keep rendering high-end and tailored made services to our valuable clients and this is the spirit shared by both firms”.

We are in a continuously evolving market and by combining business and expertise, it will allow us to expand and to reinforce our corporate & fund administration services with as main objective to best serve our client base. For the team and myself, this operation is the best compromise – we are joining a firm having the same spirit, sharing the same objectives, and mostly the same size.”
Nothing will change for the clients of both entities. To ensure continuity in the services, the management and the employees of both entities will remain as key contacts of their respective clients.
