CINCINNATI, OHIO – December 8, 2022 – Ultimus Fund Solutions® (Ultimus®), a leading tech-enabled provider of full-service fund administration, middle office, and investor solutions is honored to announce it received a number of industry-renowned awards at the 2022 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 and whose quality of services exceeds their peers. This year Ultimus received an unprecedented six awards in three categories: ETF, Private Fund, and Mutual Fund Administration. Ultimus secured the three most prestigious awards:
- ETF Administrator of the Year,
- Private Equity Fund Administrator of the Year, and
- Mutual Fund Administrator of the Year.
Ultimus is also very pleased to accept these three awards:
- ETF Administration – Client Service,
- Private Equity Fund Administration – Onboarding, and
- Mutual Fund Administration – AML, KYC, and Sanction Screening.
The awards are based, in large part, on Global Custodian’s 2022 ETF, Private Equity, and Mutual Fund Administration Surveys, which were independently administered earlier this year by the publication. Ultimus significantly outpaced industry averages in all applicable fund servicing categories in each of the three surveys (ETF Administration, Private Equity Fund Administration, and Mutual Fund Administration), reflecting a definitive affirmation from clients, both registered and private fund clients, regarding the firm’s client-centric service model and commitment to excellence overall.
Additional Industry Awards in 2022
Stemming from the firm’s long-term commitment to a consultative and client-centric approach, Ultimus also recently received Client Service for Fund Administration of the Year from Asset Servicing Times. Ultimus also received Best Data Management Solutions for Back & Middle Office award during the With Intelligence Fund Operations & Services Awards earlier this year for its uANALYZE™ platform, which is part of the firm’s proprietary, award-winning uSUITE® technology. uSUITE and its network of applications feature built-in robotic processing software, machine-learning algorithms, and application programming interfaces (APIs).
Ultimus CEO Gary Tenkman says, “It is an honor to be recognized for being the best in fund administration and for our middle office solutions. Our consistent dedication to offering customizable services for asset managers is part of our culture. In addition, a key element of our approach is to build relationships with clients, partnering with them to offer solutions across their business.
