The market is awash with cloud and managed hosting service providers, from industry heavyweights like Amazon Web Services and Rackspace to smaller, highly reputable vendors such as Digital Edge. And it’s growing rapidly. According to Future Market Insights, the global hosting infrastructure market is expected to reach $11 billion this year, an increase of $8 billion since 2018.
The broad range of providers and the array of services offered is good news for family offices and asset management firms whose unique needs don’t often work with a one-size-fits-all approach. Finding the right solution can improve efficiency, lower costs, reduce risk and enable your firm to compete more effectively. But with so many providers and the various deployment options, where do you begin?
Introducing Our Newest Clients
It’s been a busy quarter for FundCount. We’re pleased to announce the addition of five new clients:
John R. Waters & Company is a Chicago-based accounting firm specializing in wealth management, trusts and other services for high net worth families and privately held businesses. They will use FundCount for partnership accounting, a new business line for the firm. In addition, Waters will leverage PCR, a FundCount partner, to integrate broker statements with FundCount software.
Florida-based accounting firm Edward A. Zuraw selected FundCount for its powerful automation tools that streamline time-consuming processes and increase efficiency. FundCount will support the firm’s new fund administration business, which was recently added to its portfolio of services.
FundCount will provide the fund administration backbone for Cayman Island-based Chartered Financial Partners Ltd., a fund administrator that delivers accounting and reporting services to high net worth investors in Europe. The firm selected FundCount for its flexibility to handle fund accounting and to support family office clients as Chartered Financial grows.
Greenwich Global Fund Services (GGFS), a fund administration firm based in Connecticut, provides comprehensive accounting and reporting services to U.S. and offshore start-up hedge funds. Initially, GGFS will leverage FundCount to support the Blaine Fund, which invests in the public equity and debt securities of funds that trade at steep discounts.
Tennor Holding B.V., the family office and global investment company of Lars Windhorst, invests in public and private companies along with its co-investors and bond holders.
