CLIFTON PARK, NY – December 5, 2023 Ultimus LeverPoint Private Fund Solutions (Ultimus LeverPoint), a leading independent provider of full-service, technology-enhanced fund administration, accounting, and investor solutions, is honored to announce it received the top industry award at the 2023 Global Custodian Industry Leaders Awards dinner held in New York recently.
The awards ceremony independently recognizes the achievements of service providers in the fund administration industry whose quality of services exceeds their peers. Ultimus LeverPoint secured the most prestigious award:
- Private Equity Fund Administrator of the Year
This is the third year in a row Ultimus LeverPoint private equity clients participated in the independently administered survey and the third year the firm has received the Private Equity Fund Administrator of the Year award.
Ultimus LeverPoint’s, EVP Client Relationship Officer, Kelly Gooch says, “We are honored to receive this award and recognize our need to earn our clients’ trust every day. Our associates partner with clients to offer tailored solutions, a consultative and collaborative strategy that fosters strong relationships and supports our clients in achieving their business objectives. We hold the belief that the success of our clients directly translates to our own, and our unwavering commitment is evident in our daily interactions with our clients and industry recognition like Global Custodian.”
The awards are based, in large part, on Global Custodian’s 2023 Private Equity Fund Administration Surveys, which were independently administered earlier this year by the publication. The Global Custodian’s survey is widely regarded as a third-party benchmark for excellence in the industry with asset management clients evaluating the performance and quality of administration providers.
Ultimus LeverPoint significantly outpaced industry averages in all applicable fund servicing categories in the survey, reflecting a definitive affirmation from clients regarding the firm’s client-centric service model and commitment to excellence overall. Notable takeaways from the 2023 survey results include:
- Ultimus LeverPoint achieved a remarkable overall score of 6.90, surpassing the industry’s average of 6.09.
- The firm’s individual category scores outperformed industry average scores in all nine applicable categories surveyed.
- The firm received a perfect 7.0 in technology, well above the industry average of 5.85.
- As a result of its survey scores, Ultimus LeverPoint received two important accreditations from Global Custodian:
- Global Outperformer, which signifies that the firm’s overall score exceeds the industry average score.
- Category Outperformer, indicating that the firm’s score in one or more categories was higher than the industry average score.
Additional Industry Awards in 2023
Ultimus Fund Solutions also received two of the most prestigious awards at the 2023 Global Custodian Industry Leaders Awards dinner:
- Exchange-Traded Fund Administrator of the Year
- Mutual Fund Administrator of the Year

This is also the second year in a row Ultimus ranked as the top administrator in the ETF Administration Survey and received the ETF Administrator of the Year award.
Ultimus also received Best Data Management Solution for Back & Middle Office award again during the With Intelligence Fund Operations & Services Awards earlier this year for its uANALYZE™ application, which is part of the firm’s proprietary, award-winning uSUITE® technology.
