Distinguished from Competition

Our organization is comprised of a remarkable group of alternative investment accounting veterans that give us the expertise to develop software in a way that cannot be matched by our competitors. Our staff’s deep understanding comes from real-world experience – a CFO of a large hedge fund group, controller of a private equity organization, lead developer for a major fund administrator and more – and gives our team an unrivaled ability to create flexible, user-friendly, automated solutions for the demanding back-office alternative investment environment. 

In Depth Design

A big factor in our continued success is the deep analysis that goes into the product design process that starts with a constant review of regulatory literature, as well as ongoing communication with clients. When we uncover a need, we gather our experts together to determine what the underlying purpose of the request is and how that might morph in the future. This deep analysis allows us to create a more holistic solution that goes beyond superficial answers. We endeavor to enhance our product so that it not only solves today’s needs, but is flexible enough to handle tomorrow’s anticipated problems.
