Expect More from your Administrator
MANAGERS SHOULD EXPECT "BETTER" AND "MORE" FROM THEIR FUND ADMINISTRATORS
Our Philosophy is “Think Yes,” Not “do less”…
We built Alpha to be Different
While some Fund Administrators are content with providing a service, we focus on serving our clients
-"Think Yes” means encouraging a culture of “Can do” rather than “you do”
- The success of “Think Yes” is measured by exceeding the expectations of our client
Let's face it, most managers know lots about investing, but often know little about setting up and operating a fund. That's where Alpha comes in. We bring more to the table than just fund administration. Learn more about how Alpha can support you and your team
Alpha: a great choice for new or existing funds
If you are launching a new fund we can assist in the process, so your fund and business is structured properly and to give you the best shot at attracting investor capital. We see many instances where fund documents include wording that investors may find problematic, or have terms that are not considered "marketable," or that are not reflective of the fund strategy.
We welcome existing funds to our administration services. While some see moving administration firms to be as exciting as changing their auto or homeowners insurance, we believe the differentiation offered by our firm makes it a very attractive option to fund managers. We will perform the lion's share of the conversion process, so that switching is seamless, with minimal effort on your part.
Our Pricing Philosophy
Our pricing for fund administration is inclusive of all traditional services. We will not nickel and dime you with copy costs, telephone charges or other miscellaneous one-off tasks. Our compensation is tied to the size of your fund, thus we are incentivized to help you both retain and grow your assets.
Our Job is to deliver an exceptional client experience. That means that you don't have to be wondering if the reports are correct, whether they will be done on time or if there are related items that are falling through the cracks. Learn more about what we do and how we care for your fund administration needs.

ALPHA’S BEST PRACTICE REVIEW: “COME DRESSED TO PLAY”
Institutional operational standards and fraud-prevention controls are now being required for firms and funds of all sizes. A best practices review can assist you in making the cut when buy-side analysts and prospective investors are looking for reasons to reduce the universe of funds they are researching. Moreover, it is also important to ensure that the structure and terms of your fund make sense given your investment strategy.
MARKETING ADVICE AND CONSULTATION: NAVIGATING THE “COMPLEX” SALE
With over 30 years of experience marketing investment management services, Alpha can help you sharpen your message, focus on the right audience and navigate the capital raising process. A little over a decade ago you could sell hedge funds over the phone, often with a single call. Today you are faced with a complex sales process in a very noisy world. Identifying which investors are most likely to invest in any fund is a function of numerous variables. The identification of investors who understand why they are investing and who have realistic expectations of your fund's performance is important for building a lasting business.
