Alternatives and Investor Services

Alternative investments such as hedge funds, private equity, FOFs, interval funds, REITs, and BDCs require a different service model than what is provided to traditional fund types. Startup challenges, asset complexity, operational efficiency, cost effectiveness, security, and a shifting regulatory landscape complicate the ability to launch – and grow – these products.

Our solutions embody leading technology and service excellence and help promote greater control, enhanced transparency, and risk mitigation across the full range of investment servicing activities.


We offer a complete servicing solution that helps advisors open new alternative positions and support existing positions through revolutionary trade automation and business process management services.
