The fund distribution and transfer agency business has undergone a paradigm shift. Today, transfer agents and fund managers need comprehensive transfer agency and investor servicing capabilities for long-only mutual funds and alternative funds to run their business effectively. Also, alternative funds require sophisticated features and functionalities for managing complex fund structures and support for various performance fees equalization methods.
Adding to the complexity of this new investor servicing landscape, fund administrators are demanding cross-border, multicountry transfer agency capabilities to encompass integrated fund distribution and transfer agency businesses.
