Gemini Hedge Expands Distribution Capabilities With Hedge Connection Partnership

Mar 10 2016 | 12:10am ET

Fund administration specialist Gemini Hedge Fund Services has expanded its suite of distribution channels through a new partnership with industry networking company Hedge Connection.

Under the agreement, first-year membership fees to Hedge Connection's well-known Capital Club investor introduction service will be waived for managers working with Gemini Hedge, according to a statement. Approximately 30% of investors currently on file in the Capital Club have more than $1 billion invested in hedge funds, and over 80% of Capital Club allocators will consider emerging managers, according to Hedge Connection. 

In addition, managers that partner with Gemini Hedge will receive priority access to Hedge Connection events, and will be able to research prospective investors within the platform’s membership database.

"Gemini Hedge is an established and well-respected leader in the financial services industry, and we are delighted to work with a team whose mission is to help managers launch and grow successful funds," said Lisa Vioni, co-founder and CEO of Hedge Connection, in a statement.

"By choosing Hedge Connection, Gemini Hedge is giving its clients access to a platform that enables them to build their brands and access allocators within a legally compliant ecosystem that is efficient and cost-effective," she added.  

Gemini Hedge has also augmented its technology suite with cloud-based portfolio analytics and reporting capabilities, launching a sophisticated portfolio analytics platform and the proprietary Gemini Online Account Link portal last year.   

Founded in 2013, New York-based Gemini Hedge Fund Services provides middle- and back-office administration, real-time portfolio valuations, comprehensive financial reporting and a full spectrum of investor services to hedge fund managers. It is the sister company of mutual fund administrator Gemini Fund Services.

Gemini Alternative Funds, meanwhile, offers SMA platforms that enable managers to access multiple distribution channels while providing accredited investors the ability to choose among a multitude of alternative investment strategies through a single account.

All three Gemini companies are subsidiaries of TA Associates’ NorthStar Financial Services Group, which has more than $300 billion in assets under management and administration.
