Alternative mutual funds, also referred to as liquid alternatives or hedged mutual funds, are becoming a lot more popular with private fund managers. This has largely been driven by the requirement for hedge fund managers to register as investment advisers with the SEC. Prior to this, unregistered managers were not allowed to manage assets on behalf of US mutual funds. Now they can.
SEI has launched The Advisors’ Inner Circle Fund (AIC) III with an eye towards helping managers of private funds enter the retail space.
SEI has been selected by Duet Alternative Investments (USA) Ltd, a subsidiary of Duet Group, to provide operational outsourcing services for the firm’s emerging macro hedge funds.
SEI will provide Duet (USA) with a suite of operational outsourcing services in a straight-through-processing environment.
