Hedge fund administrator Apex Fund Services has expanded to Canada with the opening of an office in Toronto.
The Toronto office, Apex’s 18th, is headed by Alex Chapman. Chapman joined Apex from Commonwealth Fund Services, the former Mintz Fund Services, the firm he co-founded and served as vice president. He formerly worked in Monaco at a small fund administrator.

Red Bank, N.J.-based Apex boasts offices in Europe, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Asia.
