To drive success, investment managers need to spend their time on clients, not operational tasks. When facing disruptions or preparing for seasonal or end-of-year crunch time, you need expertise and you need it quickly. Our staffing solutions help offices address the planned–and unplanned–issues that every business encounters:
Our approach is to tailor our experience to your needs. A typical staffing firm offers a “one-size-fits-all” approach to investment management operations. However, we know every manager has a different set of challenges and needs; what suits an Asset Manager might be irrelevant to a Family Office.
That’s why we work closely with you to select the services you need to maximize efficiencies and growth.
Let us help manage your portfolio accounting, reporting, statements, reconciliation & processing, data, cost basis, composite maintenance, trade settlements, performance, billing, fees, corporate actions, funds, alternatives, Advent upgrades, custom solutions & reports, consulting, cloud, automation, compliance, IT, conversions, migrations, & hosting.
