Credit Suisse has taken an equity position in Viteos Fund Services to offer its clients fund administration and middle office services while simultaneously reducing its operating costs. Terms were not disclosed.
“Our ability to deliver both expertise and advanced technology while simultaneously reducing costs enables our clients to increase alpha,” said Shankar Iyer, Viteos CEO.
Viteos is already working with CS to develop two programs, which will be deployed simultaneously and CS, for the first time, will outsource certain internal prime brokerage operations to Viteos. Both firms will co-brand and co-market an outsourced product for hedge fund middle-office operations.
