Emerging Managers

Institutional Strength. Boutique Service.

Ultimus LeverPoint specializes in providing fund administration for emerging managers, including spin-out firms and first-time funds, by providing a high-touch approach to client service. Combining our services and solutions, technology platform, and professional expertise, we help connect emerging managers with the resources needed to launch their first fund, while minimizing costs and streamlining operations in order to meet complex fund reporting and compliance requirements.

Our emerging manager fund administration solutions will help your firm with accounting and reporting requirements mandated by your Partnership Agreement. Your firm’s principals will be left to focus on developing investor relationships and investment strategies. Your Limited Partners will receive accurate and timely reporting when you work with us. Fund Administration is not an automated process – you can rely on Ultimus LeverPoint to be an extension of your firm.

By operating with industry recognized technology solutions, we deliver timely and accurate fund accounting and investor reporting and provide secure transfer of data, enabling us to support even the most complex fund structures.

We serve emerging managers with a high-touch approach to service, and an industry leading technology platform to support you and your investors. Ultimus LeverPoint possesses extensive experience in servicing many types of fund structures and is therefore able to provide valuable recommendations on fund operating models and best practice standards that managers may want to incorporate into the Fund’s offering documents.

By incorporating strong processes for accuracy and technical competence, Ultimus LeverPoint delivers customized solutions for emerging managers. With comprehensive written procedures to guide our activities, these processes have been constructed to ensure operational excellence and quality control throughout every aspect of our operation. Our adherence to these procedures is documented in our comprehensive SSAE18 SOC 1, Type II audit report, which is completed by Ernst & Young on an annual basis. As a result, we consistently deliver quality work on a timely basis.
