SS&C Uses FundHub for New Platform

Post-trade systems and software vendor SS&C Technologies reports that it has launched the Asset Allocator Platform, based on FundHub, to provide a holistic view of portfolio holdings, a fund document repository, and performance analysis features.

SS&C GlobeOp describes FundHub as “a web-based tool for building and managing alternative investment portfolios, providing investors with analytics and due diligence capabilities.”

SS&C officials say they are aiming the platform at investors such as pension funds, endowments, foundations, insurance companies, fund of funds, and family offices that “invest in funds, separately managed accounts and related asset classes.”

FundHub helps SS&C’s Global Asset Allocator Service teams “to better support clients world-wide in managing, analyzing, processing and accounting for all investments regardless of asset class,” officials say.

“The new technology delivers fund data aggregation and analysis, holdings look-through, document management, and ABOR and IBOR [investment book of record] reporting on a single integrated platform. The solution also provides reporting and analytical tools for performance measurement, liquidity planning, and exposure analysis to help investors better manage complex portfolios,” officials add.

The University of Wyoming Foundation recently “converted its portfolio of more than 100 private funds” via a team of SS&C fund accountants helping to process “historical performance data going back to 1998,” officials say.

“With the SS&C service team collecting, reconciling and processing all investment activity and managing treasury operations on a timely basis, my team can focus on the business of investing while still maintaining full control of our investment operations,” says Philip Treick, chief investment officer for the University of Wyoming Foundation, in a prepared statement.

DKK Partners to Open Four Offices

As a result of the revenue surge, the company intends to open four new offices —  “in the Middle East and across Pan Africa in addition to the company’s headquarters in Mayfair, London.” In addition to the new offices, the company reports an increase in the number of staff members from five to 15 full-time, with more expected “in the coming months.”
