The Vermilions are unique

Based on shared values, an entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to a solution focused client service, the three founding firms have established The Vermilions in 2019 to sponsor a global, yet truly independent fund administration and fund management offering with a local high touch.

The Vermilions founding partners have a long history of serving clients with an entrepreneurial mindset around the globe. With roots going back to 1985 and ten offices in Zurich, Geneva, Amsterdam, Dublin, Luxembourg, Sofia (Bulgaria), Naperville (IL, USA), BVI, Cayman Islands and Singapore. All founding firms are majority owned by the people who are in charge of the daily business and are managed in an entrepreneurial way. This ensures that clients have a like-minded partner and access to the entrepreneurial eco-system which the founding firms have developed over the decades.

The Vermilions are a partner and resource in all phases of our clients’ business life cycles and cover all major fund jurisdictions. The Vermilions are global independent providers of fund administration, fund management, accounting and compliance services to investment funds, family offices and corporate clients and administer, with over 100 staff, in excess of USD 17b in Assets under Administration, representing a variety of strategies, including long only, hedge fund, private equity, real estate, CTA and fund of funds.

The Vermilions represent a global network and may refer to one or more of the member firms, each of which is a separate and independent legal entity. The Vermilions is a network empowered by PvB Pernet von Ballmoos AG, Swiss Financial Services and VBK+CO Group Holding SA. All three founding firms are independently managed and owned firms.

Allies

Independent Minds

As boutique providers, The Vermilions bring together people who really like what they do. And it shows: in our can-do attitude and our energy to take matters into our own hands. It also means we can customize our services much more than any large corporate environment would allow.

Deeply Rooted

Values of The Vermilions

Passion – We have an appetite for progress. We strive to exceed our clients’ expectations by being responsive, by being creative and by going the extra mile to deliver superior results. We require our people to continue to grow personally and professionally by providing opportunity and training. We embrace diversity and respect individual and cultural differences. Foremost, we encourage everyone at The Vermilions to love what they are doing and to reflect this in their client relationships.

Teamwork – Our very low staff turnover rate means that we have employees who know and trust each other. We believe that this is a crucial factor for successful and efficient teamwork.

Clarity – We initiate clear and direct action. The lack of excessive company hierarchy and politics allows for straight forward processes.

Quality – We apply the highest standards of quality to our work. We are globally regulation compliant with adherence to local requirements where these are more stringent. We constantly question, review and test compliance with these standards through strict adherence to our processes of inspection.

Integrity – Our individual voice defines us in our communities and local markets, but our collective integrity is what sets us apart. We have shared standards and a mutual respect for entrepreneurs and influential leaders, which extends our voice and reach. There is a recognition of the individuals who represent the member firms and a strong sense of support and encouragement to make things happen, together.
