March 19, 2014 - PRLog -- New York, March 19, 2014— Orangefield Columbus, a global fund administrator that delivers high-touch services using a straight-forward approach and advanced technology, today announced its focus on providing a scalable platform to support emerging managers. The global fund administrator offers an operational platform adaptable to the many needs of start-up funds, which include scalability, investor approval, expertise, and an international perspective.

With over 25 years of knowledge cultivated from working with start-up funds, Orangefield Columbus expertly guides new funds through every phase of the startup process. Orangefield Columbus partners with emerging managers, regardless of their available resources. Orangefield Columbus integrates advanced technology into a service platform that scales to meet each manager’s changing needs.   Managers can rely on a dedicated service team to ensure the right amount of resources is always being deployed and they receive support and insight into international markets through Orangefield Columbus’ global presence.

“It’s a difficult environment for emerging managers, and it’s our job to give them their best chance at success” says Joe Holman, CEO of Orangefield Columbus. “We have supported emerging managers through all phases of the start-up process, partnering with them to facilitate growth from a scalable platform that makes sense for their changing needs. We are committed to providing top-notch service to all of our clients, whether they are an emerging manager or a $1 billion fund.”

Key features and benefits of the emerging managers’ platform include:

·        Scalability: Resources scale as the fund grows from a startup to an institutional sized fund.  Orangefield Columbus will work with each manager to build a foundation necessary for a successful fund.

·        Investor Approval: After the 2008 economic downfall, new regulations and investor demands have increased, dramatically challenging the limited resources of emerging managers. Orangefield Columbus understands these requirements and knows how to build a robust operational platform that meets the most stringent investor demands.

·        Expertise: While emerging managers know their investment strategy, professional assistance is still needed to help institutionalize and articulate the operational process. Orangefield Columbus’ clients depend on this guidance through every phase of the process including document review to the best operational practices.

·        International Perspective: Orangefield Columbus provides  multi-jurisdictional support and insight into global markets.  Whether it’s jurisdiction selection, AIFMD, or UK FATCA, Orangefield Columbus’ global presence  assists emerging managers with navigating the global investment landscape.  Orangefield Columbus is able to provide a “local” perspective on a manager’s international needs through its presence in all major international financial centers.
