Global investor services group IQ-EQ has announced its US-based companies have rebranded as IQ-EQ.
Blue River Partners, Constellation Advisers, Concord Trust Company, and Greyline Partners have all rebranded as part of IQ-EQ’s US strategy.
IQ-EQ’s total headcount now surpasses 550 and the Astorg portfolio company is continuing to hire. The company’s current US footprint spans 10 offices across seven states.
Mark Fordyce, IQ-EQ’s regional CEO, The Americas said: “At the heart of this US rebrand lies our commitment to becoming the leading provider of services to the alternative asset industry and their investors, equipped with the most comprehensive range of service offerings and expertise in the industry.
“For our US business, this rebrand especially highlights the incredible progress we have made since setting off on this journey back in 2020. We are a significant force in the industry and stronger now as one business than we have ever been before, better able to serve the U.S. market, as well as global clients, with our signature, high-touch service. We have significant market ambition in the US and look forward to exciting times ahead for our 550+ team.”
In January, a new initiative from IQ-EQ was launched that will support women to launch and grow their first funds through the new IQ-EQ Launchpad.
In addition, IQ-EQ Launchpad has a goal to expand inclusivity for the wider asset management industry and grow a self-sustaining network of women in senior leadership roles.
Funds with over 5% women ownership or a woman founder will be eligible to receive preferential service terms, tailored fund administration solutions, capacity building and access to a global network.
