CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ultimus Fund Solutions,® LLC (Ultimus®), one of the largest independent providers of mutual fund services to the financial industry, today announced that it has been selected to launch and service the Peachtree Alternative Strategies Fund (Fund), a non-exchange traded closed-end fund. The Fund, which originally started as a private fund of hedge funds, converted to a registered 1940 Act investment company, allowing opportunities for additional investors to achieve hedge fund exposure.
The deal is the latest example of Ultimus’ expertise in the alternative investment space, as the convergence between private hedge funds and the registered investment world continues. Ultimus will provide the Fund with the operational capabilities and a full suite of fund services necessary to support the Fund’s complex structure, including fund administration and accounting, fund compliance, and transfer agency.
The Fund selected Ultimus in an industry where not many fund service providers can service this type of alternative product. Ultimus’ proven fund operations and support for other non-exchange traded closed-end fund (CEF) structures were identified as key factors in the decision.
“Non-exchange traded, closed-end, tender offer funds require certain operational knowledge plus high-touch servicing,” said Bob Dorsey, CEO and Managing Director of Ultimus. “With our experience in this space, we have the service model in place and the administrative expertise for these products. We’re pleased to be working with the professionals at Peachtree and look forward to helping them grow their business.”
