Leading global fund administrator explores fund life cycle management for closed-end funds

WILMINGTON, Del. – CSC®, the world's leading provider of business, legal, tax, and digital brand services, today released the insight report "The Next Evolution in Private Capital: Fund Life Cycle Management for Closed-End Funds." Private capital markets are facing the next evolutionary leap as fund managers recognize that day-to-day fund operations are not incidental but central to the way their firm is perceived in the market. The most successful fund managers will be those who recognize that the private markets have reached an inflection point.

In this insight report, CSC's fund services experts explore the trends and innovations that are redefining the way fund managers need to manage the life cycle for closed-end funds. The insight report addresses:

  • Shifting perceptions, the need for scale, and investor expectations

  • The inevitable price of success requiring adherence to evolving regulatory standards

  • The fund life cycle journey from fund formation through realization and liquidation

  • Technology and complexities inherent in the fund service ecosystem

  • Global perspectives with spotlights on APAC, Europe, and North America

"In APAC, the fund administrator is more deeply embedded in the fund life cycle at every stage," says Agnes Chen, managing director of CSC's APAC region. "Our clients work so hard to fundraise. Fund service partners need to focus on facilitating the onboarding process so that it's compliant, swift, and painless. As much as it's a compliance process, it's also a customer-service process."

CSC supports multiple fund types and investments, including private equity, private debt, real estate, venture capital, SBIC and RBIC (U.S.), fund of funds, SPV, and co-investment. CSC is fully licensed and staffed to support private fund managers in the global financial markets.

"In Europe, we're seeing a lot of traditional managers who mainly focus on public markets moving into or considering private markets," says Liam McHugh, managing director of CSC's European region. "They know where to invest and where to market, but they need guidance when it comes to fund structures and compliance."

There has been no shortage of exhilarating highs in private capital over the years, but the asset class is now entering an exciting new phase.

"Private capital is one of many industries going through a data and compliance evolution as it matures," says Anne Anquillare, CFA, CSC's head of fund services North America. "The challenge is that this evolution is happening at a time when technology–and the expertise required to manage it–is also transforming rapidly. For today's fund managers, access to top-tier administrative and compliance technology and expertise is mandatory."
