Alter Domus Assets Increase by a Record 50% in 12 Months


  • Alter Domus assets under administration (AUA) top $1.6 trillion, making it a top 10 global fund administrator
  • Head count increases 30% globally, to over 3,600

LUXEMBOURG – March 8, 2022 – Alter Domus, a leading provider of integrated solutions for the alternative investment industry, has seen assets under administration (AUA) soar to over $1.6 trillion in the 12 month period ending January 2022, reinforcing its position as a top provider of fund administration services to the alternatives industry.

In the United States, a key growth market, Alter Domus’s assets have increased by $360bn (over 50% increase) over the same period. The growth comes on the back of increased client demand, particularly amongst private equity and real estate managers, and as the fast-growing alternatives industry faces an increasingly complex regulatory and compliance environment. 

Despite the global war on talent, Alter Domus grew global employee headcount to over 3,600, an increase of over 30% in 12 months, as the firm continues to attract best-in-market talent to serve clients. Alter Domus saw the highest number of new joiners in Europe with 843, followed by the United States with 377, and in APAC with 256. The United States’ growth in talent was mostly centered in Chicago, Salt Lake City, and Indianapolis.

Reflecting on its growing influence, Alter Domus now serves 25 of the world’s top 30 leading global private equity firms; 26 of the world’s leading real estate firms; and 26 of the top 30 debt managers, by assets. Alter Domus operates offices across North America, EMEA, and APAC, with a presence in nine cities in the United States alone.

Alter Domus’ sustained growth story over the past 12 months is impressive, particularly when you consider the global headwinds that disrupted much of the financial services sector,” said Doug Hart, CEO. “As scrutiny of the alternatives industry continues to grow, we have doubled down on investing in our platform and our people. This has enabled us to continue to meet our clients’ challenging and complex needs.”

The private assets industry is growing at a record pace, leaving fund managers with various challenges to generate operational and cost efficiencies, while delivering for their investors,” said Alex Traub, Chief Commercial Officer. “At Alter Domus, we take great pride in knowing that we provide first-class services to our clients through our technology and through our people. Our strong global footprint enables us to meet the challenges of clients in key financial and regulatory markets around the world.”
