SS&C GlobeOp Forms New Group To Support Hybrid Fund Structures

Mar 5 2015 | 12:19pm ET

Fund administration firm SS&C GlobeOp has launched a separate group to address the needs of funds that have hybrid structures. 

According to the company, traditionally separate asset classes have continued to converge within the same fund structures, leading to the need for unique capabilities that can accommodate such complex, non-standard funds. 

For instance, asset managers increasingly have private investments as part of a hedge fund strategy, a fund-of-fund approach to private equity, a reliance on SMAs, or need integrated systems able to consolidate complex accounting, reporting and administration tasks for vehicles that contain both hedge fund and private-equity style funds.

The new group will be made up of SS&C experts and will be led by George Schell, VP of SS&C’s hybrid fund services group. The team will be responsible for setting up automated workflows, providing expertise in structuring, consulting, and facilitating onboarding of these funds.

Publicly traded SS&C, based in Windsor, CT, services some 6,900 financial services organizations representing more than $26 trillion in assets under management.
