The OSMO Story

During his 20+ year career in the investment management sector, Ian Forrest formed a clear vision of how a hedge fund should operate. Running the middle office at RAB and a subsequent long career in the investment management sector gave him the platform to found OSMO Partners in 2014.

OSMO's early purpose and vision was to provide high quality Out-Sourced Middle Office functions to investment managers. As the business evolved, the senior leadership and client base expanded and it became clear that OSMO's proactive approach and accountability across operations, took it way beyond the traditional outsource partner model. Today, OSMO's clients experience seamless service with a suite of solutions that mirror those of an in-house Ops Team.

Clients can select as much or as little Operational Support as they need, COO services from a team of buy-side professionals, or a full startup package for new funds and managers.

OSMO works as part of a close knit team with clients to bring strength and cohesion to hedge fund operations.

OSMO core philosophy

When you work with OSMO you work with a team of buy-side professionals who are:

  • Pragmatic and efficient
  • Mutually respectful, honest and transparent
  • Enthusiastic and proactive
  • Knowledgeable and experienced
