LEGIS Group was named ‘Best administrator – under $30bn Fund of Hedge Funds’ at the HFMWeek European Service Provider Awards 2014 last week (27 March).
The awards, which were announced at a ceremony held at The Hurlingham Club in London, recognised companies that have outperformed their peer group and provided outstanding service and support to the European hedge fund industry over the past year.
Legis Group previously won the ‘Best administrator – under $30bn Fund of Hedge Funds’ category in 2012 and then ‘Best administrator – under $30bn client service’ in 2013.
Hosted by Andy Zaltzman, the awards featured a number of categories and were judged by a panel of independent senior industry representatives who took into consideration financial progress, growth and genuine innovation across a number of different business areas to identify the eventual winners of each category.
Legis Fund Services managing director Patricia White collected the award on behalf of the company.
Shortlisted in five categories HFMWeek said of Legis’ achievement:
‘The HFM judges found Legis to be a committed and innovative provider of admin services. With excellent customer service and a willingness to provide meaningful and bespoke solutions to clients, the firm was described as “technically able and not content to rest on its laurels”. A good all-round performer.’
Chairman and chief executive officer of Legis Group, Stuart Platt-Ransom, is pleased that the fund service business has been recognised by HFMWeek for a third consecutive year.
‘It is extremely rewarding to receive this recognition from such a respected hedge fund publication as our fund service business continues to grow. We aim to differentiate ourselves on client service so to receive this award, which recognises the expertise and quality of service, is testament to our dedicated and professional team,’ said Mr Platt-Ransom.
Legis Fund Services managing director, Patricia White said:
