Alternative Asset Management
Over the last several years, the hedge fund and private equity industries have been reshaped by regulators, shifts in the investor profile and a changing businaess model. C&A has been at the forefront of these changes and advising firms in areas of technology, finance, risk and control and business continuity. C&A has assisted these firms along the business spectrum; from identifying new front-end systems to better processing of their multi asset strategies to assisting firms in the decision making process of outsourcing their infrastructure and books and records. To increase C&A’s technical knowledge and depth in the industry, we have recently invested in JRP Consulting LLC, an accounting portfolio integration and data information development company. The vertical nature of JRP’s platform integration expertise complements C&A’s wide breath of experience. C&A has recently completed a myriad of assignments in the Alternative Asset Management Industry:
- Family Office – C&A is currently working with a multi-billion dollar New York family office to provide onsite dedicated software support for their users to improve efficiency and to monitor new software developments to help ensure the client is taking advantage of everything the software can provide.
- Platforms – C&A identified and implemented OMS, portfolio accounting, investor portals and reporting platforms for hedge funds and private equity firms.
- Technology – Designed and executed a long range strategic system architecture for a hedge fund, which included reducing the physical footprint of servers, creating a desktop virtual environment, outsourcing the exchange server and improving the business continuity plan.
- Finance – Assisted a PE firm in identifying an accounting portfolio system and automating its waterfall calculation. Among other assignments, C&A enhanced the reporting capabilities of one hedge fund and implemented an investor portal which aggregated information across funds.
