Our Approach to Back Office Support Services

Transferring responsibility for back office support solutions, like financial reporting, accounting, tax, valuation, and other ancillary operations, to an independent third party assures limited partners that they receive timely and accurate information. Administrative resources at the fund level are freed up to permit managers to focus on scouting, screening, and harvesting deals. Costs to private equity firms are further decreased, as these operations are typically borne by the private equity fund, not the general partners.

Outsourced company’s back office support operations can also:

  • Assimilate all necessary information for fund managers, reducing the need to “chase information”
  • Increase investor confidence in financial reporting and portfolio company valuation
  • Easily increase or decrease with demand throughout the fund’s life
  • Are performed by licensed industry specialists
  • Facilitate third-party control on movement of funds
