Custom House Fund Services Bulgaria EOOD
Macedonia Square | 1 Alabin Street, 11th Floor | 1000 Sofia | Bulgaria
Bulgaria became a full member of the European Union on 1 January 2007. An emerging market economy in the middle income range, Sofia is the country’s financial heart and home to its major universities, cultural institutions and commercial companies.
The Sofia Fund Services department began its operations in 2003. Until the end of 2014, it was part of the TMF Group, which had been operating in Bulgaria since 1992. After the merger with Custom House and subsequent management buyout, TMF Fund Services Bulgaria became part of Custom House Global Fund Services.
Like all Custom House hubs, the Sofia office is committed to operational excellence and strong control procedures. Our team consists of experienced, highly educated, flexible, proactive, innovative people who understand the importance of detail and customer relationships. Our focus is on quality and commitment to client service and the collective strength of the team is an important reason why Sofia was selected as the core operational office for fund accounting. The office has quickly established itself as the central hub supporting clients in the US, Europe and Asia. Business continuity is essential, with Malta acting as the secondary site for fund accounting.
Our professional team of over forty employees has a mix of international exposure and broad professional expertise. Senior staff has more than ten years of experience in fund administration and ensure clients’ needs and requirements are consistently met in a timely and professional manner.
