Summary:

Considerable interest has been shown of late in the supposedly new concept of shadow administration, particularly in light of the news that the world’s largest hedge fund has effectively appointed two administrators. But, in reality, shadow administration has been around since the beginning of hedge funds; the difference is that the industry now focuses much more on the operational process and analyses new trends with greater interest.
