AIS introduces web portal for hedge fund document management and investor relations

Wednesday, December 22, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update - AIS Fund Administration announced the release of AIS IR Manager, a secure document management and investor relations Web portal designed expressly for the firm’s hedge fund clients. AIS Fund Administration provides outsourced middle and back office support and fund administration to the alternative investment industry.

The AIS IR Manager is a unique Web portal that allows managers to post fund documents, newsletters and marketing materials. IR Manager is hosted by both the hedge fund manager and AIS on a restricted, password protected Web site. Financial statements are uploaded directly by AIS to ensure that all information is secure and confidential. Managers are able to authorize their investors and prospects with access to their available information and track how information is being used by activity logs and a secure tracking encryption.

“We’ve seen tremendous demand from our clients for such a platform on two fronts,” said Paul Chain, AIS President. “First, compliance minded CFOs want a way to satisfy regulatory scrutiny, maintain a high level of confidentiality and demonstrate control over the fund’s marketing efforts. Second, managers want an efficient and secure way to distribute newsletters, offering documents, marketing materials and statements to existing and potential investors. IR Manager ensures that only the intended party views the material they are permitted to view. Answering both needs on one platform, controlled by AIS as the third party administrator, provides a valuable solution for our clients.”

AIS IR Manager is one of the solutions offered by AIS to meet the growing investor demand for transparency, by allowing document and report access from a single site. All pertinent fund information is available anytime at the click of a mouse and can be accessed via the AIS corporate Web site or a link from the hedge fund manager’s site.

AIS IR Manager features include:
- Document Manager: A single repository for investor statements, fund documents and marketing brochures

- User activity logs that are designed to track login and download activity by investors and prospects

- AISCAT:A log of all transactions made on the fund by the investor

- Double validation using AIS internal systems for investor security

- Double watermark: A feature that ensures all information is secure
