FundSuite is Multifonds; the award winning fund administration software providing fund accounting, portfolio accounting, and investor servicing and transfer agency on a single platform.
Today more than $5 trillion in assets for both traditional and alternative funds are processed on FundSuite, in more than 30 jurisdictions for the world's leading global custodians, third-party administrators, insurance companies and asset managers.
Service providers, fund administrators and asset managers face multiple challenges, including:
- Complexity and cost of regulatory change – they face unprecedented levels of new regulations such as FATCA, AIFMD, OECD CRS and Mifid II.
- Convergence – institutional investors are increasing allocations to alternative funds, and retail investors are looking to absolute return funds, resulting in convergence of long-only and alternative funds.
- Pressure on fees and operational costs - they are having to look internally at ways to reduce costs and maximize efficiency, but at same time evolve to meet client servicing needs such as middle office, new asset classes and ETFs.
- Need for greater risk management and transparency - regulation and investors require more transparency, which asset managers in turn demand from their service providers and technology vendors.
- Need to reduce total cost of ownership – they often have multiple systems for different regions, different asset classes and different fund types, which is increasingly uneconomic to maintain.
