A manager’s focus should be on activities that maximise the performance of their fund, including transactions, raising capital and investment management. Back-office administration creates an unnecessary burden.
Outsourcing reduces operational risk through appointing an experienced administrator and also mitigates the risk of fraud through segregation of front and back office functions.
We are an extension of your team. Through outsourcing a manager benefits from adding skills and experience to their team as and when they are needed.
Managers can communicate regularly and efficiently to their investors through our investor portal, benefitting from our investment in technology.
Institutional investors have an expectation for administration services to be carried out independently of the investment manager. Outsourcing administration means managers can benefit from an enhanced reporting capability, which can be tailored to specific investor requirements.
The sector is facing increased regulation such as relating to AIFMD, FATCA, CRS and Economic Substance. Outsourcing to a specialist administrator ensures this reporting is carried out accurately.
Outsourcing brings cost savings via reduced infrastructure and efficiency. The cost of outsourcing administration can also often be allocated to the fund.
