Halwyn is a financial services company involved in both the construction and promotion of innovative and class leading financial solutions and investment funds.
The company is an appointed global promoter to the Fairway Group, with regards to specific products that have been jointly developed by both companies. This includes the FlexGlobal individual savings plan and the Fairway International Master Trust for employee savings.
In addition, Halwyn works with a variety of both regional and global asset management firms as an appointed Promoter of their funds in the UAE.
Halwyn is authorised and regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority and in the UAE by the Emirates Securities and Commodities Authority ("SCA").
The Halwyn team has significant experience over two decades in fund management, product development, wholesale distribution, financial advice, quantitative risk analysis and regulatory affairs. This means that the company is very well placed to advise and assist with regards to fund promotional activities.
The company has sponsored the SCA fund registrations for a number of investment managers, including Goldman Sachs Asset Management. In addition, Halwyn is also an appointed SCA registered Promoter of investment funds from Aberdeen Standard Investments, BlackRock, ENBD Asset Management, HSBC, Kotak, Pacific Asset Management and Russell Investments.
Halwyn can also provide introductory services for fund managers who do not have their own established presence in the region.
Halwyn can provide bespoke corporate employee savings plans and gratuity liability management schemes via the Fairway International Master Trust.
The provision of such schemes can increase employee financial security and can have positive impacts on both employee recruitment and retention. The DIFC in the UAE is leading the way in the GCC through the mandatory adoption of such schemes for all employers, replacing the previous unfunded end-of-service-benefits from 1st Feb 2020.
Halwyn has also jointly developed with Fairway the offshore FlexGlobal international savings plan for individual investors. FlexGlobal offers low cost, transparent, fully flexible and penalty free access to first rate investment funds featuring institutionally priced share classes.
