Maples Fund Services - Stability in the Evolving Hedge Fund Administration Market
In the wake of recent developments in the hedge fund administration sector, Maples Fund Services continues to demonstrate its long-term commitment to the industry with a critical market assessment and multiple award wins.
Stephen Lewis, Maples Fund Services’ Regional Head of Sales and Relationship Management – Europe, examined the future of hedge fund administrators in HFMWeek’s latest breakfast briefing in London. Lewis commented: “The market has seen massive structural changes with a spate of acquisitions and now the question is over the sustainability of the Oligopolies” [a term coined at the event referencing the four largest administrators in the space].
The article, which can be viewed here, acknowledges “a great deal of uncertainty for buyers of administration services” and confirms managers on-going search for consistent and stable players. Maples Fund Services, celebrating its ten year anniversary in 2015, continues to build on its leadership position in the fund services space. The firm’s technology advancements and development of a full-service regulatory reporting offering in 2014 are recognised as key value-add solutions for clients that differentiate Maples Fund Services among its competitors.
Further demonstrating its continued excellence and innovation, Maples Fund Services was honoured with two industry awards at the HFMWeek European Services Provider Awards, Maples Fund Services was named “Best administrator – under $30bn single manager” for the second consecutive year and “Best administrator – small and start-up firms”.
Maples Fund Services' strong performance acknowledges its ability to remain a stable option for existing and new clients during uncertain market conditions. The firm has continued to provide a high standard of client service through bespoke technology solutions including MaplesFS Connect, which enables investment teams to understand and attribute sources of portfolio risk, and to drill-down into underlying data investigating causal factors via an online portal.
