About PEF

Defined by our people

Much has changed in the private capital industry over the past decade, and today’s alternative investment funds face strenuous administrative responsibilities and increasing demands from regulators and investors. But one thing hasn’t changed: an efficient and transparent back office requires experience, acumen, and commitment.

PEF delivers high-touch, high-value services that transform the back office into a center of excellence. Our guiding principle is to attract and retain the best and brightest in our field. We hire only top practitioners who have held senior roles in finance, audit, and accounting environments, and we ensure our clients have direct access to their expertise and insight at all times.

Founded on industry needs

As the pace of change accelerates, a growing number of investment firms of every size and type are rethinking their back office strategy and turning to outsourced fund administration.

Since 2002, PEF has supported the back office needs of some of the most challenging funds in the alternative space. Our company was founded to support the unique compliance and reporting needs of Small Business Investment Companies (SBICs). As federally licensed entities, these alternative investments have administrative, reporting, and licensing requirements that other services firms are unable to meet.

Today, PEF Services is nationally recognized as one of the top boutique fund administrators supporting multiple fund types including a buyout, growth, venture, distressed debt, mezzanine, real estate, energy, co-investment, SPVs, and fund of funds. We continue to break new ground in meeting the industry’s biggest challenges for private equity funds of every type, size, and structure.

Driven by our values

We bring a service mindset to our interactions with our clients, our industry, and the wider community. As a values-driven organization, we believe in making the world a better place. We donate to both national and local charities, and volunteer our time to help the less fortunate in our local area. We also encourage our employees to donate to the charities that are important to them with a generous charitable-match program.

We are proud supporters of these worthwhile organizations:

The U. S. Marine Corps Reserve collects new, unwrapped toys during October, November, and December each year, and distributes those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children.

The Community Food Bank of New Jersey along with their partners feed over 900,000 hungry people in the state of New Jersey and distributes almost 500 million pounds of food.

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created with 150 Races and nearly 1 million people participating on four continents.

Established in 1928, The Barn Theatre is New Jersey’s oldest continually producing community theatre. The Barn stimulates interest in the theatrical arts by producing plays and other productions to entertain the community.
