Hamilton Global Opportunities PLC (HGO) has selected Equity Trustees to act as the Alternative Investment Fund Manager (AIFM) to the Company.

HGO is a UK based Company that has recently listed on Euronext Growth Paris following a successful private placement offering.

HGO is a new client for Equity Trustees, a 132-year-old Australian trustee business now providing independent fund governance services in both Ireland and the UK.

HGO stems from Hamilton Ventures, a Merchant Banking boutique founded by Sir Peter Edward Middleton and Gustavo Perrotta in 2009 in response to valuation-driven growth capital opportunities post the financial crisis. 

“We’re delighted to have been chosen by Hamilton Global Opportunities PLC and partner with them on the development of this exciting offering,” said Kevin Lavery, CEO, Equity Trustees Fund Services (Ireland).

“Equity Trustees continues to grow its presence in Europe through its UCITS and AIFMD offering, allowing clients to focus on their core skillsets”.

HGO will invest in sustainable opportunities arising from direct access into growth stage companies in Tech, Fintech and Medtech with a primary focus on Silicon Valley and Israel.

“Equity Trustees have demonstrated a true partnership approach throughout the process. Their support, flexibility, knowledge and experience simplified the process and enabled us to focus on developing the strategy and interacting with our shareholders”, said Gustavo Perrotta, CEO and Founder, Hamilton Global Opportunities PLC.

“Equity Trustees is the leading provider of trustee and fund governance services in Australia with funds under administration and management of more than AUD $100b, acting as fiduciary for nearly 300 funds and 100 investment managers,” said Harvey Kalman, Managing Director UK and Europe & Global Head of Business Development Fund Services, Equity Trustees.

“Our European offices are continuing to strengthen by providing our clients with a trusted partner in both the UK and Ireland,” concluded Mr Kalman.
