As your fund matures, you may find that your current service providers are not providing you the robust administrative services or personal attention that your expanding fund needs. Many “big box” providers in our industry treat fund administration services as a commodity – always moving towards lower cost models, reduced services, and offshored functions. At Ultimus, we recognize that each fund and each adviser is different and requires a customized, high touch approach. Further, fund servicing is our core business and we are recognized in the industry for our experience. We have built a track record of service excellence, achieved though significant investments in our people and technology.
Despite a desire for better service and value, you may be delaying a conversion due to apprehensions about anticipated workload, distractions, and service interruption. However, fund conversions do not have to be painful. Ultimus’ well-planned, comprehensive, and timely conversion plans, which focus on all affected parties – shareholders, adviser, boards, institutional investors, and distribution platforms – will yield a well-executed and seamless conversion.
When you convert your fund administration to Ultimus we take responsibility for the entire conversion process and attend to all the details, so you can continue to concentrate on managing and growing your assets. Through a consultative approach, we tailor a service package to meet your firm’s and funds’ specific needs, with an Ultimus relationship manager overseeing and guiding the entire process. As a result, the conversion process with Ultimus is remarkably efficient, effective, and smooth.
