Back-office operations

We partner with investment managers, wealth managers and hedge funds to help them offer platform-agnostic support to their back-office teams, and provide operational support covering a large number of asset classes.

Overview

All well-functioning businesses require extensive back-office support for their operations. Back-office operations include settlement, clearance, record maintenance, regulatory compliance and accounting-related tasks.

These operations are sometimes underrated, although they cover everything from handling and controlling background tasks to equipping front-end employees to perform efficiently.

At Acuity, we strategically partner with clients to work as an extension of their teams. Our ability to hire, train and retain top finance talent is our main differentiating factor. Our firm’s capital markets research heritage has helped us understand and manage requirements of back-office operations teams. Our ability to provide cost-effective and stable back-office operations has enabled our clients to achieve their operational alpha goals.
