Ultimus Fund Solutions is built from the strategic combination of Ultimus Fund Solutions, LLC and the Gemini Companies (Gemini), which came together in February 2019. Our combined company, operating as Ultimus Fund Solutions, is a leading provider of full-service fund administration, accounting, and investor servicing solutions to support the launching and servicing of registered funds, private funds, and public plans. We also offer customized structures designed to support the unique needs of pensions, endowments, foundations, and other large institutions. As of June 30, 2019, Ultimus services approximately $150 billion in assets under administration and over 1,000 total funds.
Rich Company Histories
Ultimus and Gemini both have rich histories of providing administration services for all types of registered and private funds. Founded in 1999, Ultimus originally focused primarily on mutual fund administration and doubled its asset under administration in 2015 through acquisition of Huntington Asset Services, another leading mutual fund service provider. In 2018, it expanded into private fund administration by acquiring Woodfield Fund Administration. Starting in 1983, Gemini partnered with financial professionals and the investment community to provide an ever-expanding suite of services for their investment products. For 35+ years, Gemini continually added comprehensive solutions to ultimately provide services for mutual funds, ETFs, hedge funds, alternatives, state-sponsored 529 plans, and more, as well as guidance on fund compliance and distribution, blue sky laws, and printing.
One of the Largest Independent Providers
The combination of our two firms makes us one of the largest independent institutional strength fund administrators, allowing us to provide broader product offerings and service more innovative and complex fund strategies, as well as deliver industry-leading technology, highly automated processes, and solutions with enhanced scale. However, our increased size doesn’t mean our clients get lost in the crowd; we remain 100 percent focused on genuine partnership and providing superior boutique-style service throughout all facets of our organization.
Business Partner Approach & Client Centric Service Model
As one company today, Ultimus Fund Solutions’ consultative approach and client centric service culture helps managers and investors navigate and flourish in today’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic investment landscape of complex fund structures, specialized strategies, expanding access points, evolving compliance regulations, and growing demands for transparency and robust reporting. We work closely with advisers to help expand the distribution of their investment strategies and achieve their goals.
