At this important stage in our growth and success, it is essential that we work with an administrator who understands our business model but also more importantly our guiding principles of trust, integrity and commitment. Apex and Pro-invest have a shared vision in this area and Apex’s approach to service provision echoes our core values. As we look to capitalise on unique investment opportunities for our clients, we need flexible service providers who can evolve along with us. This partnership will allow us to confidently focus on our investment mission, whilst being operationally supported by qualified experts to achieve our growth goals.”
