What We Do
Frostrow Capital is an independent investment companies group and AIFM. We specialise in providing services to a growing number of leading London Stock Exchange-listed investment companies whose combined assets amount to approximately £9.4bn*.
*As at March 2021.
Frostrow is able to manage all aspects of the day-to-day operations, administration and promotion of investment companies, thereby enabling investment managers to focus on the investment portfolios under their management. We are regulated by the FCA as a full scope AIFM and we are able to ensure that the regulatory requirements of the AIFM Directive and all other UK regulatory requirements are met.
Frostrow is authorised by the FCA to act as an Alternative Investment Fund Manager (AIFM) to several of our investment company clients. The two key roles of the AIFM are the portfolio management and risk management functions. Under the Frostrow model, portfolio management is delegated, subject to the oversight of Frostrow and the Board, to the appointed portfolio manager on a fully discretionary basis, while Frostrow performs the risk management function.
Using our position as an independent investment company specialist, we promote our client companies as widely as possible in order to grow them. By actively engaging with existing and potential investors, we work to increase demand for the shares in the secondary market. This complements the efforts of the respective portfolio managers and brokers, with whom we collaborate closely.
We are specialists in the investment company sector, with unrivalled experience in dealing with the many regulatory and compliance issues involved in the successful running of an investment company.
Frostrow’s highly experienced team performs the full range of company secretarial services required by stock exchange-listed investment companies.
Frostrow manages the day-to-day operations of each client company. We ensure the accounts are consistent with the requirements of the relevant accounting standards and comply with the AIC's Statement of Recommended Practice.
We are responsible for the day-to-day investment fund administration and ensure the investment manager complies with investment guidelines. The administration function includes trade capture, trade processing, pricing and valuation of the portfolio.
