Hedge fund administrator HedgeServ has opened a new office in London.
The $115 billion firm's debut in the industry's second-most important city "reflects our commitment to answering the global demand for HedgeServ's innovative, high-quality fund administration services," firm president Justin Nadler said. "We are well-positioned to deliver local expertise to clients through our growing London presence and our established Dublin office, with 250 experienced fund accounting, middle-office operations and investor services professionals."
To lead its new Mayfair office, which will focus on business development with hedge funds, funds of hedge funds, private equity funds and institutional investment managers, HedgeServ earlier this month hired Tim Jones from the Bank of New York Mellon. Jones was named director of business development at HedgeServ; he was a vice president at BNY Mellon's alternative investment services business and formerly worked at aLinedata and Tradar.
In addition to its presence in the British Isles, HedgeServ has offices in New York, Chicago and Grand Cayman.
