CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ultimus Fund Solutions®, LLC (Ultimus®) announced today that it was chosen to provide comprehensive fund administration services to New York-based Hudson Valley Investment Advisors, Inc. (Hudson Valley), as the firm launches its first mutual fund. As an established investment manager with over $655 million in assets under management, Hudson Valley successfully launched its first mutual fund through the Ultimus Managers Trust (UMT) platform. With the addition of Hudson Valley, the Ultimus series trust offering now serves 58 funds from 38 advisors, advancing itself in the series trust arena.
As part of its series trust offering, Ultimus will provide Hudson Valley with a full suite of fund services including: fund accounting, administration, distribution strategy, and transfer agent and shareholder services. While Hudson Valley selected Ultimus to handle the operational aspects of running their mutual fund, they pointed to Ultimus’ personal, consultative approach and reputation for providing a high level of service as key factors in their decision.
“Hudson Valley has a time-tested investment strategy, and they wanted the same from their service provider. As their fund grows, they’ll have the operational support in place to make it happen,” said Dave Carson, President of Ultimus Managers Trust. “They are smart people, serving their community with a hands-on approach. And they figured out very early in the process that our service model is similar to theirs. Our goal at Ultimus is to put our clients in a position to succeed, just like the advisers do for their clients. We’re excited to have Hudson Valley join us.”
“We were impressed with how Ultimus handled the launch of our mutual fund, guiding us through the process. They have provided us with a very educational and consultative approach,” said Gus Scacco, CEO and CIO at Hudson Valley. ”As experienced portfolio managers, we focus on our fundamental investment process which allows us to be competitive against larger firms. Leveraging Ultimus for our mutual fund provides us with a depth and breadth of experience and access to resources we could not achieve alone.”
