Solutions for the CTA/CPO Industry

Overview

Cutting edge technology and high touch client service is at the core of everything we do. Our team is made up of seasoned fund administration professionals with experience working at large, medium and small fund administration firms. Our proprietary cloud-based platform, Seamless, along with our processes and procedures were all designed to eliminate inefficiencies and provide a high level of client service. We continually gather feedback and requests for enhancements from our clients and our staff and have a team of developers to address any new requirements.

Many of our first clients were commodity trading advisors and commodity pool operators and we pride ourselves on the knowledge we have of this industry. CTAs and CPOs are typically required to be registered with the CFTC and the NFA who have reporting and other disclosure documents that need to be provided on a regular basis which we can provide. We also have experience assisting our clients with any examinations or on-site visits these regulators impose.
