Bill Tomko, EVP, Head of Fund Servicing at Ultimus, elaborates on the firm’s client-centric interactions and congratulates Ultimus team members for their outstanding client service. “Our client interactions start before they ever join Ultimus or launch a fund. First, we extend the time and attention necessary to understand their goals and the nuances of their business, then create a tailored approach to address their needs,” he says. “I want to thank the Ultimus team for their hard work and dedication to this level of service, especially since we and our clients are still in a mostly virtual environment. That is a huge accomplishment. This steadfast client-centric approach is indeed the Ultimus difference, and the Global Custodian survey results have once again affirmed that.”
