Funds Increasingly Looking towards Outsourcing will Benefit from New Middle / Back-Office Managed Service Offerings
NEW YORK – FinServ Consulting, a leading technology consulting firm serving alternative asset managers, global banks, and their service providers, announced today the opening of a new office in Mumbai, India. The new India office will support FinServ’s core consulting business for hedge funds and private equity funds. FinServ’s India team will expand the firm’s capacity to service the following business segments:
- Hedge Fund, Private Equity Fund, alternative asset manager business consulting services
- Specialized middle and back-office managed services
- Software-specific system customization and implementations for all Salesforce & Workday platforms
- Industry systems integration (including Enfusion, Portfolio BI, Allvue Systems, Investran, and others) and bespoke systems development.
The effects and impact of the global pandemic continue to unfold. However, the need for resilience in terms of operating models and infrastructure continues to increase as fund managers operate remotely. Hedge funds and alternative asset managers are facing new business imperatives, namely the need to reduce expenses and identify variable cost structures through new forms of outsourcing across operational, technological, and other support services.
Howard T. Weinstein, FinServ Managing Partner commented, “The global pandemic has accelerated the belief that remote workers are effective and a viable alternative for asset managers. Funds are increasingly relying on outsourcing work, including managed services for the middle and back-office, to achieve greater efficiency while maintaining performance. Our India office will enable us to meet these and other emerging client demands in the future.”
Lee Schare, FinServ Founding Partner added, “In India, back and middle office managed services are dominated by a few large players with commoditized offerings. Our India office staff has already received positive client feedback conveying that FinServ’s team is more hands-on and engaged, delivering a responsive and customized level of service.”
Robert Aurigema, CFO, RTW Investments commented, “FinServ has helped us automate some of our most complex processes, offering better control and increased scalability. The team’s ability to marry a deep business understanding with the development of technology solutions is impressive and rare. Their project management team delivers comprehensive solutions to a variety of business challenges in a timely manner and with a consistent high quality that we have come to expect from them. We look forward to continuing to grow our relationship with FinServ.”
