The alternative investment industry continues to grow and change at lightning speed. Greater investor expectations, increased regulatory scrutiny and broader compliance obligations have led to intense pressures requiring ever-changing expertise and more time than ever to manage.
Many fund managers have realized that in-house fund administration and investor services might be a misuse of team talent. Outsourcing time-intensive and specialized services can allow fund managers to redeploy their internal resources more effectively.
