Apex Group Ltd has been appointed by Encore Capital Management to provide fund administration, investor reporting and tax services.
The global financial services provider was appointed due to its ability to offer “both tax fund administration services through one relationship, underpinned by its functional and real estate industry experience and leading technology solutions”.
Encore is a vertically integrated real estate developer, operator, and institutional investment management firm, with in excess of $2bn in assets under management. Encore has been a longstanding tax compliance and structuring client of FTS, a leading tax services provider, which saw a majority shareholding acquired by Apex Group in April 2022.

FTS Founder, William McEnroe, commented: “This appointment by Encore to provide fund administration services is evidence of the strategic rationale of the acquisition of a majority shareholding in FTS by Apex Group.
“Our clients are now able to access a full suite of services, in addition to their existing tax compliance and structuring delivered by FTS’ experienced team.”
With FTS becoming part of Apex Group, existing clients are now benefitting from access to the Group’s global, cross-jurisdictional reach and range of additional services including fund administration, digital banking, compliance solutions and ESG Ratings and Advisory.
Encore CFO, John F Chiste, added: “We have been a satisfied client of FTS for over a decade and their acquisition by Apex Group has opened up an expanded range of new services, products and technologies to support our business. Apex’s proven track record in the real estate industry combined with their range of solutions means that they are the perfect partner for Encore’s ongoing operations.”

This announcement follows a period of accelerated new business growth for Apex’s Americas business, with real estate client wins including American ventures partners RailField Partners and Midtown Capital Partners.
Apex Global Head of Real Estate, Michael Sheahan said: “As the Real Estate asset class continues to see significant allocations from institutional investors, it is important that managers choose the right partners to support their administrative and operational needs as their funds scale.
“Apex’s single-source solution, delivered by an experienced team, offers the efficiency and convenience of both fund administration and tax services delivered via one relationship.”
