IQ-EQ has been named 'Fund Administrator of the Year' at the first ever SuperReturn Awards, which took place in Amsterdam on Tuesday evening.
SuperReturn runs the world’s largest private equity and venture capital event series, and their new awards programme aims to recognise and commend the companies driving private equity forward. Winners were selected by a diverse group of experienced private equity professionals from an array of leading international firms.
Commenting on our win, Group Head of Funds Justin Partington said: “Winning this coveted new award is testament to the immense growth that our group has experienced over the past 18 months. We have significantly extended our worldwide footprint, and strengthened our product offering with innovative technological solutions, to provide one of the most comprehensive global solutions in the alternative funds space. This allows us to provide our clients international support combined with regional expertise across the world.”
IQ-EQ completed a number of transformational acquisitions throughout 2018, significantly expanding our geographical footprint to 23 jurisdictions with 2,450+ people globally, as well as our product offering for clients. The expansion has increased the combined value of the group’s assets under administration to US$400 billion, up from $250 billion in 2018. This encompasses 600 funds worldwide, including the majority of the top private equity firms.
We have also expanded our technology offering, launching our own Investor Solutions platform to deliver real-time portfolio data reporting and analysis, as well as through our acquisition of regulatory hosting and outsourced compliance specialists Lawson Connor, whose MaxComply software utilises the latest in RegTech to provide clients with end-to-end compliance and regulatory support.
Justin added: “The award would not have been ours without the support of our valued clients and the incredible hard work and dedication of our people, so I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you and well done to everyone involved.”
This latest success notably comes hot on the heels of our win at the AGF Service Providers Awards in South Africa last month.
