  • An AIF Client

    “Tower Gate is currently providing us with a complete range of fund management services. We took advantage of their bespoke and professional approach in order to set up our first UK-based fund of funds. We would therefore highly recommend Tower Gate as a leading player in the fund management industry for their expertise and flexibility.”

  • An AR Client

    “Where early stage technology venture investors tend to be scatter-gun, we built Beacon Capital to be a Technology VC firm with an exceptional degree of investment focus. So we could concentrate on core business, we needed a regulatory service partner we could rely on. Tower Gate has proven to be a well run, professional platform and their team have been an absolute pleasure to deal with.”

  • An AIF Client

    "Bobby, Will and the team at Tower Gate helped make our transition from closed ended to open ended real estate fund a smooth and straightforward one. They have subsequently not missed a beat in their new AIFM role blending proper and rigorous risk management and process with a commercial awareness and property knowledge which in turn has ensured the smooth operation of our fund."
