of the Year
Fortis Prime Fund Solutions fortis.jpg
Fortis was noted for its gameplan and leadership. One judge said this was an organisation that had turned round a difficult period, and after restructuring in 2005, the division is now on the up again. A further judge noted that Fortis provided an excellent awards submission that was thoroughly detailed. “This level of attention to detail is exactly what I want from a hedge fund administrator.” Over the past twelve months, Fortis has added 145 new full-time staff, some of them joining two new operational groups: data management, and OTC processing.
