Why outsource the accounting and administration for the private equity fund management company?

  1. As there is a compelling business rationale for outsourcing the accounting, operations and administrative functions of the investment fund, an outsource solution for the functions of the management company should also be considered.
  2. Who is currently performing the accounting and administrative functions for the management company?
  3. Can that person’s time and resources currently allocated to the management company be better utilized elsewhere within the fund?
  4. If the fund is considering hiring an accountant to perform the management company functions, why not consider a solution that is less costly and better from an internal control standpoint?
  5. An outsource solution for the management company versus performing the functions internally will be less costly, allow you to direct your internal resources to value added business, improve your internal controls and permit greater flexibility in running the private equity fund business.
