SS&C Named Top Hedge Fund, Private Equity Administrator by Global Custodian

Global Custodian has named SS&C GlobeOp as a top administrator for hedge funds and private equity funds in its annual survey, significantly outperforming the industry average for the second year in a row. The independent annual survey asked SS&C clients to rate administrators across a number of categories, including client service, reporting and onboarding. Their response is a testament to the continued investment SS&C has made in its fund administration business over the last year.

In many clients cited SS&C’s client outreach efforts in a remote environment as a differentiator. “I’m giving them an excellent rating this time, due primarily to their willingness to work with us during a difficult time. This helped to ensure we were appropriately positioned to survive during these challenging times and retool ourselves to prosper in the future,” one client told GC.
