Israel A Englander has expanded its prime services division and will now offer the first and only technology platform offering solutions to both emerging hedge fund managers and investors.
The division has been rebranded as Managed Accounts and Prime Services (MA&PS).
Created to serve the needs of the sub-USD250m AUM hedge fund community and investors, MA&PS provides traditional prime brokerage services that are enhanced with customised investment solutions targeting entities that manage or invest capital via a separately managed account (SMA) structure.
The MA&PS platform delivers tools that allow emerging hedge fund managers to easily operate a complex (SMA) infrastructure at reduced costs and time usually not associated with other systems. With a suite of services available to the client, the MA&PS platform can be customised to meet the demands of a client's workflow, while maintaining the flexibility to scale the services as the requirements evolve.
MA&PS also offers customised solutions for Investors seeking access to emerging asset managers through separately managed account allocations. The platform provides investors with a seamless, turnkey solution enabling them to allocate capital while mitigating risk through a fully transparent, self-directed managed account programme.
"MA&PS is a dynamic innovation that is the first of its kind enabling hedge fund managers and investors to utilise comprehensive and value-added services on a single customisable technology platform that will give them competitive and strategic advantages in today's rapidly changing and increasingly complex environment," says I.A. Englander president Stephen Tobias.
