SBIC Fund Services
Small Business Investment Companies (SBIC) are attractive investment funds, enabling General Partners to access government leverage at low rates that enhance returns. SBIC funds also come with more complex administrative, reporting and compliance requirements, and those requirements are changing all the time. With deep roots in the SBIC community, a high-touch approach to service, and a best-of-breed technology platform to support you and your investors, PEF helps firms meet complex SBIC fund reporting and compliance requirements confidently.
Limited Partner Administration
The administration of illiquid alternative assets has become increasingly complex. Investors and investment boards are more sophisticated, compliance requirements are more rigorous, and access to advanced analytics is more critical to investment performance than ever before. PEF helps you meet these challenges by managing the day-to-day requirements, providing senior-level insight into strategic matters, and empowering more confident, effective decision-making through timely and meaningful analytics.
PEF provides targeted guidance for emerging managers, spin-out groups, and first time funds. Additionally, we provide consulting for wind-down or end-of-life funds, SBIC funds, litigation situations, and other complex administration projects. We use proven processes, flexible technology, and unmatched expertise to support funds of all sizes, from startups and smaller funds to those with billion-dollar commitments, and help General Partner entities demonstrate the highest levels of transparency and professionalism to their investors.
