Fund Services

Our dedication to the alternative investment fund industry means our teams have extensive knowledge of the technical and operational factors necessary to support expectations from both general and limited partners. Our teams are focused on the administration of private equity, real estate, and debt structures.

We manage the process of getting complete structures up and running from limited partners to underlying assets, and do so across numerous jurisdictions. We are familiar with the systems, processes, rules and best practices in each jurisdiction and have access to an extensive network of service providers in each market we operate in.

Managers come to us for assistance with setting up new structures and vehicles, recommendations on service providers, identifying office spaces, establishing systems and processes, and managing the launch. Our long-standing expertise allows us to assist clients in mitigating risks that could potentially delay the launch of their structure. Through our experience, operational approach, and technology, we’re able to add real value to our clients’ back- and middle-office operations.

A client engagement team is involved in all set-up, administration and corporate secretarial requirements during the lifecycle of the structure. This experienced and dedicated team organizes all activities related to the structure’s operations and coordinates all parties in order to perfectly mirror our clients’ organizational setup.

Each new client engagement begins with the assignment of a Senior Alter Domus team member with full responsibility for the client relationship, service delivery and quality standards. They ensure an effective team is put in place to manage and administer client affairs on a day-to-day basis and serve as the client’s central point of contact for any questions or requests. This model has proven to be extremely effective for alternative asset managers where flexibility and agility are key in their relationships with service providers.
