Congratulations to UMB Fund Services (UMBFS) for winning the Best Liquid Alternatives ‘40 Act’ Fund Administrator award given by HedgeWeek.* The Hedgeweek USA Awards for excellence among hedge fund managers and service providers celebrate the achievements of firms that contributed to another significant year for the sector.

President of UMB Fund Services, Tony Fischer, recently shared more information about the company’s approach and success with HedgeWeek‡, including its key differentiators.


“We’ve been doing traditional ’40 Act work for mutual funds for more than 25 years. We’ve evolved with it, and developed extensive experience supporting these funds. I think what differentiates us is that we are very consultative. If a start-up manager – or indeed an established manager – wants to get into the registered alternative space, we spend a lot of time up-front educating them on what these structures look like.”
