Alcova Asset Management LLP has selected Northern Trust Hedge Fund Services to provide a full range of administrative and middle-office outsourcing services to its quantitatively driven, equity market-neutral fund.
The mandate from the UK-headquartered quantitative hedge fund manager is the latest announced by Northern Trust Hedge Fund Services.
Fund managers are increasingly looking for solutions that support real-time data delivery, said Liam Butler, head of Northern Trust Hedge Fund Services Europe. This helps them meet demands for transparency particularly as they implement various global regulations.
We were looking for a partner who had made an industry leading investment in technology and built an integral middle-office service from day one, said Chief Operating Officer and Partner at Alcova Asset Management LLP, Russell Hart. Northern Trust, through its global scale and experience in providing specialist hedge fund administration, demonstrated an understanding of the intricacies of our strategy and met all our requirements.
We are pleased to provide specialist hedge fund administration and middle office outsourcing services to Alcova, said Madeleine Senior, head of custody and fund administration sales for Northern Trust in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Our advanced technology solutions support Alcovas differentiated approach that is equal parts quantitative and discretionary and are designed to evolve with them.
