Castle Hall Alternatives continues expansion with new London office

Castle Hall Alternatives, a specialist provider of operational due diligence to global investors, has expanded its activities to Europe, opening a new office in London. Michael Bolger, ACA CFA FRM, recently joined Castle Hall as Director to lead the firm’s European due diligence practice.

“We are delighted to expand our business in Europe and welcome Michael to Castle Hall,” says Chris Addy, CEO. “Our new location will enhance our ability to conduct due diligence on European asset managers and will allow Castle Hall to strengthen its relationship with our European clients.”

Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, Castle Hall’s London office continues the firm’s initiatives to expand its global footprint. In September 2011, Castle Hall announced a strategic partnership with Orchard Harbour, based in Sydney, Australia, to strengthen the firm’s due diligence capabilities across Asia. “Investors worldwide appreciate Castle Hall’s independent and unconflicted approach to operational due diligence,” commented Mr. Addy. “With on the ground coverage across North America, Europe and Asia, Castle Hall is well placed to provide the client service, depth of resources and scale that leading investors demand when selecting a due diligence vendor.”

Prior to joining Castle Hall, Bolger was at Trafalgar Asset Managers, a London-based credit and equity hedge fund. At Trafalgar, Michael assumed a broad range of business management and operations responsibilities. He was also responsible for the firm’s investor operational due diligence, managing investor due diligence meetings and overseeing the completion of RFP’s and due diligence questionnaires. Michael previously spent more than four years with Amber Partners, working from both New York and London to conduct onsite due diligence on a large number of manager organisations.

“I am very excited by the new challenges ahead at Castle Hall,” says Bolger. “My prior experience has given me exposure to both the investor and manager perspectives during the ODD cycle, and I look forward to sharing this viewpoint with Castle Hall’s clients going forward.”
