Fund Administrators Now Part of the Due Diligence Process

26 Feb 2010

Spencer highlights some of the legal, regulatory and market risks that long/short equity hedge funds are exposed to. He also gives examples of the reports that these types of funds make available to their investors. Hugh and Spencer discuss the scope of due diligence that is performed by investors in connection with such funds and how Maples Finance, as a fund administrator, has become part of the due diligence process. Hugh adds that fund administrators need to have in place the most current technologies to deal with increased technical demands from investors for their reporting purposes.
