As 2015 begins, the alternative investment space can look back on a positive year of revival for emerging managers. With an increase in both the size and regularity of successful new fund launches in 2014 the actions of the major bank administrators in recent weeks has been somewhat surprising.
Hedge Funds Review reported that, as a group, hedge fund managers with a track record of less than two years led industry performance into the start of 2014 with an average gain of 11.3 percent. These managers represent the future of the industry and require a reliable administrator with a consistent service strategy in place to deliver security and stability through their fund services provision.
Apex Fund Services has specialised in providing solutions to established middle market managers for eleven years and in doing so has gained a robust reputation for reliability and client retention globally. The core services of fund administration and middle office support are surrounded by products from information delivery to capital introductions and delivered through a geographically diverse network of 34 offices located around the globe in 26 countries and domiciles.
Apex actively looks to work with successful and growing managers with a focus on Alpha to help support their growth; the existing AUM of a fund is not a prerequisite or requirement influencing Apex’s on-boarding process and there are no plans to put restrictions on AUM in place.
The achievement of 1st and 2nd place by Apex in the 2014 Hedge Funds Review FOHF and Single Manager Awards respectively (as voted for by Managers) demonstrates a shift in industry milieu; Managers, Investors and Directors are now looking to fund Administrators for reliability and longevity of relationship by working with providers like Apex who recognise the potential and success within reach of middle market managers.
Apex Fund Services is perfectly positioned to service managers looking to distance themselves from the uncertainty of the major banks for their fund admin requirements and welcomes the opportunity to work with successful managers of all sizes.
