The 2017 Monterey Insight report reveals that Matheson acts for 29% of Irish domiciled investment funds by assets under management as at 30 June 2017.
The recent report from the independent fund research company highlights that the number of Irish domiciled funds has grown by 6.1% since 2016 when the total of funds was 4,637.
