The current business environment in the alternative investments industry is very exciting, says John McCorvey III, Chief Executive Officer at Stonegate Global Fund Services. “The industry is evolving in many ways as technology advancements continue to have an impact: the prime brokerage business continues to change with price compression, lower commissions, liquidity pool and dark pool access; technology and innovation are assisting service providers such as Stonegate Global in streamlining processes, such as consolidated prime brokerage, fund formation and fund administration, and subse- quently passing along significant cost savings to its clients.” Stonegate has changed the way traders, family offices and investment managers create and run hedge funds and other alternative invest- ment vehicles, says McCorvey. “At Stonegate, we provide an efficient, streamlined and cost effective approach to starting a hedge fund or other investment fund vehicle through our Hedge Fund In A Box SM product and our Innovative Alter- native Fund Solutions SM ,” he says. “Our comprehensive solution allows Stonegate to handle all of the minutiae associated with complex fund formation, as well as quarter- backing the set-up process.
