Summary:

The ever-changing hedge fund regulatory environment together with the continued rise of institutional investors in the hedge fund space has significantly increased the reporting burden on investment managers to both regulators and investors. In this environment, driven by regulators and investors, managers are increasingly turning to fund administrators to assist them in meeting their regulatory and investor reporting requirements. Fund administrators in turn must expand their service offerings and develop sophisticated data management and reporting capabilities to properly service their clients.
