Fund Services

Alter Domus has dedicated teams focusing on private equity, infrastructure and real estate clients. With over 70% of our revenues derived from the alternative investment fund industry, we have gained an in-depth knowledge of the global technical and operational issues that are necessary to support expectations from both general and limited partners.

Alter Domus has over $642 billion of assets under administration (AUA) for Fund Administration Clients.

As a result of our deep experience in the industry, we understand the requirements of getting a fund up and running in various jurisdictions. We are familiar with the applicable systems, processes, rules and best practices in each jurisdiction and we have access to an extensive network of service providers in every market in which we operate and also active involvement in industry associations. We frequently assist managers in setting up new funds, recommend various service providers, locate office spaces, establish systems and processes and manage the fund launch. We work tirelessly to ensure that our clients can launch their funds on time and without any unexpected delays.

We believe our experience and operational approach, combined with technology, such as our integrated back-office software and our customized document management, workflow and secure web-accessible databases, enable us to add value to our client’s back- and middle-office operations. The main strength of our service model is that a client engagement team is involved in all set-up, administration and corporate secretarial requirements during the life of the fund. This experienced and dedicated team coordinates all activities related to the fund’s operations and our clients always have a central point of contact for any request.

Every new client engagement begins with the assignment of an Alter Domus Director who has the overall responsibility for the client relationship, service delivery and quality standards. The Alter Domus Director ensures that an appropriate team is put in place to manage and administer client affairs on a day-to-day basis. An Alter Domus Manager is assigned as the client’s day-to-day contact for any questions concerning accounting, tax and corporate legal matters.
