SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Conifer Fund Services, the fund administration division of The Conifer Group, LLC (Conifer), has once again been recognized for the strength of its offerings and client service in Global Custodian magazine's 2012 Hedge Fund Administration client survey.
Conifer's significant investment in technology and operations, in particular its cloud-based asset servicing platform Conifer iCon, has led to increased client satisfaction and stronger survey scores. The firm more than doubled its 'best-in-class' rating count from the previous year and earned top marks in a variety of categories ranging from investor services and alternative product coverage to client service and overall value. Conifer also scored higher in nearly every area surveyed.
The Conifer clients surveyed praised the flexibility and accuracy of the firm's reporting, which has been further enhanced through Conifer iCon. Clients also lauded the firm's high-touch, client-centric service. One client surveyed noted that, "each employee [at Conifer] is extremely committed to providing excellent service to its clients."
"Conifer's strong performance in this survey reflects an enhanced client experience, underpinned by continued investment in our operational infrastructure as well an ongoing commitment to high-quality client service," said Jack McDonald, CEO of The Conifer Group. "Through the launch of Conifer iCon, we've taken asset servicing into the cloud and armed our clients with a powerful tool that bridges all of their investment support processes for the first time.
