AIS Fund Administration has launched AIS IR Manager, a secure document management and investor relations web portal designed expressly for the firm’s hedge fund clients.
AIS Fund Administration provides outsourced middle and back office support and fund administration to the alternative investment industry.
The AIS IR Manager allows managers to post fund documents, newsletters and marketing materials.
IR Manager is hosted by both the hedge fund manager and AIS on a restricted, password protected website.
Financial statements are uploaded directly by AIS to ensure that all information is secure and confidential. Managers are able to authorise their investors and prospects with access to their available information and track how information is being used by activity logs and a secure tracking encryption.
“We’ve seen tremendous demand from our clients for such a platform on two fronts,” says Paul Chain, AIS president. “First, compliance minded CFOs want a way to satisfy regulatory scrutiny, maintain a high level of confidentiality and demonstrate control over the fund’s marketing efforts. Second, managers want an efficient and secure way to distribute newsletters, offering documents, marketing materials and statements to existing and potential investors. IR Manager ensures that only the intended party views the material they are permitted to view. Answering both needs on one platform, controlled by AIS as the third party administrator, provides a valuable solution for our clients.”
