Tuesday, September 06, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update - Wells Fargo & Company announced an agreement to acquire LaCrosse Global Fund Services (LaCrosse), an independently managed hedge fund administration and middle-office service provider, from Cargill, pending regulatory approval in several jurisdictions. The Structured Product Services division within Wells Fargo Corporate Trust Services (CTS) is sponsoring the transaction.

Upon closing, this acquisition will provide Wells Fargo and CTS with a complete service offering to the hedge fund administration market as LaCrosse's robust platform and technology performs not only traditional fund administration services, but also operational support, derivatives processing, bank debt processing and cash/collateral management.
