Ultimus Fund Solutions, a provider of mutual fund, pooled investment and middle office services, has added Dina Tantra to its management team as Executive Vice President, Director of Fund Administration and Compliance.
“The legal and compliance professionals at Ultimus work closely with clients, in conjunction with our many business partners, to provide the core servicing that is expected and to enable the successful navigation of the continuously-changing regulatory arena,” says Gary Tenkman (pictured), Chief Operations Officer and Managing Director of Ultimus. “As we continue to grow, Dina will be instrumental in overseeing these aspects, along with cultivating a strategic outlook not only for the fund administration and compliance teams, but for the firm as a whole. Adding Dina is another significant step in helping to ensure that Ultimus maintains and improves its service levels and we’re excited to have her on board.”
Tantra, who recently served as Managing Director at Foreside Financial, will oversee Ultimus’ fund administration, fund compliance, and corporate compliance teams. Her varied executive experience over the past 20 years includes serving as a ’40 Act board trustee and president, while also leading teams specialising in areas of legal, compliance and regulatory, and distribution services. Her directive in mutual fund administration was to partner with asset management clients in the US and internationally in order to assist them in building and growing their financial products within the parameters of the regulatory environment.
“In my experience, investment advisors are seeking to partner with firms such as Ultimus in order to receive assistance in steering through the complexities of the securities regulations, coupled with insight on how to implement industry best practices,” says Tantra. “Ultimus has a stellar reputation among financial service administrators in providing customised client service and I am delighted to join the team. To be a part of this culture and atmosphere is energising and my hope is to continue to support clients in achieving their goals through the teams, tools and resources of Ultimus as a premier service provider and business partner.”
