WTP Advisors has expanded its services to include a comprehensive Form PF Diagnostic. Form PF, a reporting obligation adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission is a challenging and lengthy undertaking for many hedge funds that are confronting quickly-approaching filing deadlines.
“With all the confusion surrounding Form PF it really comes down to ‘data’. Firms need to take stock of what they have, what they need and how it all comes together,“ says Lou Sala, CEO of WTP’s Capital Markets division.
Leveraging its middle and back office expertise, the Capital Markets team at WTP Advisors provides full data discovery and analysis for each question on Form PF. This creates a structured reporting framework which supports a more comprehensive approach to the Form PF filing process.
“Our Form PF Diagnostic appeals to both first and second-round filers as it provides critical data analysis and support needed by funds of all size, strategy and type,” says Sala.
In addition to the Form PF Diagnostic offering WTP has developed its own software solution, Flex PF. Flex PF is a dynamic reporting tool that can be used for Form PF as well as additional regulatory, investor and operational requirements complete with workflow, approval and audit trail.
“The core flexibility inherent in the software allows for seamless integration with a firm’s existing platform” says Ilicia Silverman, Director/Head of Business Development of WTP’s Capital Markets division. “Flex PF can act as a stand-alone data warehouse or work in conjunction with a firm’s current one. It is a great tool for firms with extensive infrastructure as well as for those who outsource aspects of their operations.”
“Our value proposition is steeped in our expertise in peeling back the onion and getting to the root of operational processes. Form PF is squarely in our wheelhouse” says Sala.
WTP’s staff is led by industry professionals, each with over 20 years’ experience in the capital markets space. WTP has extensive project resources with the ability to provide staff augmentation for the Form PF process as well as operational support during and post-project.
