FundCount, LLC, a worldwide provider of accounting and investment analysis software, today announced that it was awarded the title of Best Hedge Fund System by bobsguide, an online platform and global information resource for the financial technology sector.
The inaugural bobsguide Technology Awards provide a comprehensive overview of the various segments of the fintech market and the partnerships that contribute to success. Winners were selected by an independent judging panel based on several criteria including the strength of technology updates, the impact on client experience, and user and market engagement.
“The hedge fund category was particularly competitive with both established and newer players making the shortlist,” said Michael McCaw, editor of bobsguide. “However, based on their assessment of the solution and client engagement, the judges felt that FundCount thoroughly stood out – a real testament to the work done by the FundCount team.”
“Hedge funds operate in a highly competitive market where efficiency, transparency and client service have an enormous bearing on success,” said Alex Ivanov, CEO and founder of FundCount. “Integration across accounting and reporting along with the flexibility to drill down into underlying transactions is key. We are delighted that bobsguide recognized these strengths and the tangible benefits FundCount’s back-office accounting and client-focused reporting bring to a hedge fund.”
FundCount improves accuracy and efficiency of hedge fund operations by aggregating all investor and portfolio accounting on a single platform. The software supports virtually all security types in addition to the complex fee calculations, capital calls, entity structures and reporting requirements unique to hedge funds.
