To achieve a single source of investment truth, family offices must pay close attention to how data is gathered and organized in their accounting system. But that is easier said than done.
Read the interview with Ashley Whittaker, President, Global Sales at FundCount, as he explains the challenges family offices face and identifies actions that can be taken to ensure data is accurate, aggregated and accessible for a holistic view of wealth.
Founded in 1999 and headquartered in Barbados, FundCount has offices in Boston, Toronto, Singapore, and Dubai. It originally developed software for the hedge fund market and grew from there. The benefits of FundCount’s fully integrated accounting, general ledger and investment analysis solution spread quickly and created demand from other market segments.
Today, single and multi-family offices, fund administrators, private equity firms, and hedge funds worldwide rely on FundCount for accurate, timely information and flexible reporting. FundCount improves operational efficiency and provides immediate, actionable intelligence that helps our clients – and our clients’ clients – succeed.
