Third Party Fund Management

Often a Management Company in the European Union known as a Man Co Platform will delegate to a firm like Sturgeon.

Sturgeon has been a third-party fund manager since 1998; originally with a private US family office and in the last decade as an Independent Investment Manager.  Sturgeon is known to many regulators including the Central Bank of Ireland (CBI) and the Luxembourg regulator (CSSF).Third Party Fund Mangement Sturgeon Ventures
