Acadian AM live on SS&C's Administrator
May 17, 2017

SS&C Technologies Holdings, a global provider of financial services software and software-enabled services, says that Acadian Asset Management LLC (Acadian) has transitioned its long/short portfolios to SS&C GlobeOp. Acadian has been leveraging SS&C GlobeOp as its fund administrator for long-short strategies since Acadian launched its Diversified Alpha equity strategy in 2016.

The asset manager cited a number of factors that were critical in its decision, including SS&C's fund administration leadership as well as extensive middle office expertise. Most notable were SS&C GlobeOp's capabilities around margin finance management, cash and collateral management, and tri-party reconciliation.

"The appointment followed a detailed search and due diligence process across the major fund administrators in the market," said Tara Norton, Senior Vice President, Director, Hedge Fund & Alternative Asset Operations, Acadian. "SS&C was able to clearly demonstrate their ability to service large, complex, long/short fund managers across a broad range of asset classes and they were unrivaled in terms of technology offering. Above all, we selected SS&C because of their commitment to client service and integrity."

Under the agreement, SS&C provides comprehensive middle office and administration services across Acadian's long/short operations. Services include trade capture and lifecycle processing, collateral management, fund accounting, and financial reporting.
