Launching a new managed fund or hedge fund? Speak to Mainstream

Mainstream was built on supporting boutique managers

Back in 2006, Mainstream identified a gap in the fund administration market. At the time boutique fund managers were having difficulty getting larger securities companies to perform their fund services. These managers also lacked the scale to develop competitive skills and technology in their own back office.

We recognised how boutique fund managers could be better supported. We went on to win the business of over 100 fund managers, many of whom have grown exponentially from their start-up beginnings.

Fund types

Some of the investment structures we can administer:

  • Unit trusts
  • Closed end funds
  • Hedge funds
  • Fund of hedge funds
  • Private equity funds
  • Alternative funds
  • Direct property funds and real estate investment trusts (REITs)
  • Exchange-traded funds
  • mFunds
  • Family offices

  3. Next we work through your back office processes, especially any unique requirements that are needed. Clear and open dialogue is crucial in this stage. All requirements are carefully reviewed against your offer documents to ensure compliance.
  4. Finally we go through a number of operational checklists and user-testing before switching on our fund services in your name. All of our work is done ‘in country’ and you will have direct access to the specialists administering your fund.
