A transparent, accessible service model
Our high-touch, responsive service model is founded on three key elements. We start by leading you through an onboarding process that has been refined over a period of nearly 15 years to maximize efficiency, ease, and transparency. Next, we assemble a hand-picked team that gives you access to senior-level expertise at all times. And, we support the engagement with a mix of proprietary and industry-standard technologies that deliver a new level of visibility and analytic insight into your portfolio. Our approach to fund administration combines exceptional teams, proven processes, and industry-leading technology.
Smooth onboarding processes
We have successfully transitioned hundreds of clients to outsourced back office fund administration services with a thorough and clearly defined onboarding process. Each client engagement is customized to maximize efficiency and value and minimize the unexpected. Before the work begins, we prepare a customized Service Level Agreement (SLA) outlining the services, scope, reporting requirements, and all other important deliverables. We also provide a comprehensive review of your legal and financial files to ensure consistency and best practices will be applied from day one.
An Extended Team of Experts
As a PEF client, you are assigned a permanent, dedicated client services manager who leads an extended team of accountants, compliance experts, and technical specialists. By providing you with a single point of contact, we ensure continuity, control, and full accountability for your operational success. At the same time, we ensure you have access to the range of expertise you need to address any back-office challenge.
Powerful, flexible technology
For more than 15 years, PEF has been at the forefront of fund administration technology. Combining our world-class services and technology we help General Partners and Limited Partners of every size and investment strategy to minimize costs, elevate service levels, streamline operations and achieve sustainable growth.
One of the first to recognize the potential of automation and analytics in streamlining administrative processes and delivering greater insight and transparency, we continue to make technology a priority today. Our clients benefit from a mix of proprietary technologies and industry-standard platforms, resulting in a system that is powerful, flexible, and purpose-built for private fund financial reporting, investor communications, and data management.
