Accounting Services for General Partners

Managing wealth is difficult enough, but what happens when the assets you oversee reside in every corner of the world, are held by numerous asset managers and come in all shapes and forms? Getting an accurate picture of returns in real-time is no small task. It can tax resources and lead to errors – and ultimately a flawed view of performance.
