Alternative and traditional asset manager Gemini Fund Services has made two key appointments and relocated two of its offices.
The firm has promoted former president Andrew Rogers to the post of chief executive officer while former executive vice president Kevin Wolf takes over the role of president. In their new posts, Rogers will focus primarily on business development while Wolf oversees the firm’s fund accounting, fund administration, legal administration, tax and compliance, technology and transfer agency operations.
Gemini will also, as of October 1, relocate its Hauppauge, N.Y., and Omaha, Neb., offices to more spacious quarters.
“Gemini has been in the business of creating and servicing mutual funds and helping advisors successfully launch pooled investment solutions for over 25 years and we currently have more than $15 billion in assets under administration,” said Rogers in a statement. “Our ongoing focus is on empowering advisors to bring alternative investment funds to market to meet the increased interest in these vehicles among high net worth clients.”
