Fund Associates provides performance verification based on independent portfolio valuation verification services. Based on the information provided to us by the Fund as to what positions it holds, our technology platform allows us to dynamically interact with your broker to properly value your fund. This allows Fund Associates to provide timely and accurate reports to both the Fund and its investors, if desired. Providing an independent, third party representation of the valuation of the Fund enables the manager to ensure that its investors have a high level of confidence in the reporting provided to them. This also allows the Fund manager to focus on what they do best, managing the Fund.
