FundAssist Adds Two

Aug 30 2013 | 10:11am ET

Hedge fund service provider FundAssist has made a pair of senior hires.

Philip McKee was named product development manager and Tanya Merrigan client reporting manager. The former will work on FundAssist's software development team and the latter will lead its key investor information document and Factsheet business teams.

Both join FundAssist from hedge fund administrators, where McKee was a systems development manager and Merrigan a client service manager.

"As the business grows, we are always looking for dynamic and ambitious people to join our team," FundAssist managing director Jim O'Reilly said. "Philip and Tanya are the exact calibre of people we need to continue growing and expanding the services we offer to the funds industry."

"A significant change in industry approach means that many asset managers are now engaging us to produce their factsheets, KIIDs and other client reporting documents due to the efficiencies we can provide," senior manager Andrew Johnston said. "We are also seeing increased demand for our data and document dissemination and validation service too. Our in-house system, FundAssist Express, encompasses all published data and documents in the one place with capabilities for delivering to all users of the information, including regulators and fund platforms."
