Abacus Group recognized as top 100 managed service provider

Thursday, February 23, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update: Abacus Group LLC (“Abacus”), the market leader in hosted technology services for hedge funds, today announced that it has been named to Nine Lives Media’s fifth annual MSPmentor 100 Global Edition, a distinguished list and report identifying the world’s top 100 managed service providers.

A leading provider of hosted IT solutions for hedge funds, Abacus was included among the top 20 firms (#6) ranked by recurring revenue percent growth, having recorded a 175 percent increase of recurring revenue versus the previous year. Additionally, the firm was named one of the top 20 firms ranked by recurring revenue dollar growth. Abacus’ appearance on the MSPmentor 100 follows a string of achievements; the firm was named the Best Overall Technology Provider for hedge funds by Hedge Funds Review in December.

“We are committed to providing our clients with the best managed services available that suit their needs in both a cost-effective and efficient manner,” said Chris Grandi, CEO of Abacus. “Our growth in both revenue and number of clients over the past year, and our inclusion on the MSPmentor 100 list, represent the value our company offers to hedge funds looking for flexible, scalable and effective cloud solutions.”

Published annually, the MSPmentor 100 is compiled using data from MSPmentor’s global online survey, conducted from October through December of the previous year. The report recognizes top managed service providers based on a range of metrics, including annual managed services revenue growth, revenue per employee, managed services offered and customer devices managed.

“MSPs on this year’s global 100 list lifted their annual recurring revenues 28 percent to $1.04 billion, an incredible showing considering the economic uncertainty all IT services providers faced,” said Joe Panettieri, editorial director of Nine Lives Media. “Those MSPs are now managing 2.7 million desktop and mobile devices for customers, an incredible jump of 50 percent from 2010.”
