Kreis Consulting was established in 1998 in Glasgow, Scotland, where it retains its UK headquarters.

The company was originally set up to help investment management companies distribute their funds and services in Switzerland. Kreis soon expanded in the UK market, acting as a wholesale third-party distributor of specialist investment products to the IFA market. A wide range of products, most bringing some form of tax planning benefit, was offered including Venture Capital Trusts, EIS qualifying fund raisings, commercial property partnerships, and film production partnerships.

In recent years Kreis has concentrated on the expansion of its core business of providing corporate, business, consultancy and outsourced administration services to private businesses, companies and LLPs.

From the outset Kreis Consulting has been active internationally and has worked with clients based in France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, Cyprus, the USA, the U.A.E., Brunei and Singapore, as well as in the UK.
