ConvergEx Group’s NorthPoint prime services and technologies business is expanding its offerings to service mutual funds that employ strategies usually reserved for alternative investment managers.
The NorthPoint platform now offers a solution that leverages several ConvergEx platforms, including the Eze OMS and RealTick, to monitor mutual funds’ collateral needs and liaise with fund administrators and custody banks to ensure those needs are met in a timely manner. This includes upgrading customers’ current execution and reporting infrastructure to accommodate regulatory requirements and operational considerations.
Additionally, NorthPoint will offer mutual fund customers their expertise in navigating and securing the often complex tri-party agreements between the fund, trust banks and clearing firms, so the fund remains compliant with the Investment Company Act of 1940.
“In order to compete with the growing number of hedge funds, mutual fund managers are increasingly looking to offer a variety of investment choices, including offering funds with hedged strategies,” said Doug Nelson, chief executive officer of ConvergEx’s NorthPoint. “We are very pleased to offer these services to help our customers employ new strategies and stay ahead of their competition.”
