Duff & Phelps' technology solutions help funds cost-effectively address regulatory and reporting challenges.
Fund administrators and managers face an environment of ever increasing regulatory and reporting requirements, as well as cost reduction challenges. Compiling lengthy and complex off-line calculations and reports, whilst eliminating the risk of error, and reducing costs, can be exponentially challenging.
We offer operational reviews, together with bespoke automated solutions across a broad range of investment administration and fund management systems and processes, providing increased efficiency and productivity, improved control and accuracy, in a professional format. It is our philosophy that all data manipulation can, and should, be automated.
