Confluence Whitepaper Outlines Hedge Fund Reporting and Control Challenges

Financial administration automation specialist, Confluence, released a new whitepaper for hedge fund administration executives, entitled "Hedge Fund Reporting: The Change Imperative".

"Mandates from investors, regulators, and auditors are driving significant change in hedge fund back offices," said Kirk Botula, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Confluence. "Each group is demanding new levels of due diligence, transparency, and disclosure that are driving never-before-seen hedge fund reporting requirements. Technology and automation can improve processes and offer the speed, control and flexibility needed in this new reporting environment."

A recent Rothstein Kass survey showed that 98% of hedge fund managers expect increased regulation of the hedge fund industry by the new administration—adding to burdens already imposed by FAS 157, FAS 161, and International Financial Reporting Standards.

The whitepaper also provides practical advice to help ensure that reporting processes are sufficient to meet these heightened demands. It offers best-practice recommendations and includes a "Sample Checklist" to help administrators evaluate their operations, whether they rely on outside service providers or their own internal back offices.
