Alternative Fund Administration
Rising expectations from fund managers and LPs on governance, accuracy, transparency and compliance mean today’s alternative fund administrators need to ensure peak operating efficiency and on-demand delivery of high quality real-time reporting and data insights in order to seize market opportunities.
The surging interest in alternative funds and onward march of regulation is driving significant opportunities for specialised funds administrators, though seizing the opportunities is not without challenges. Today’s fund managers, LPs and other investors are demanding unprecedented levels of access to information, transparency and control over their investments and the 24/7 convenience of modern interfaces. At the same time, fund managers themselves are looking to gain efficiencies to maximise returns and to focus on core activities of deal sourcing and capital raising in an increasingly competitive landscape.
As a result, administrators are now required to deliver increasing levels of governance, compliance, accounting accuracy, real time reporting, multi-asset capability and new back and middle office-services, all of which are applying significant pressure on operating margins.
To remain competitive and fully grasp the alternative funds opportunity, administrators need to ensure peak operating efficiency, control the cost of compliance, and deliver solutions to provide managers and their investors absolute flexibility when it comes to when and how they engage.
