12 Jul, 2012
HedgeOp Compliance, LLC (HedgeOp), the leading provider of specialized regulatory services and software for investment advisers in the US, has been recognized as Best North American Regulatory Advisory Firm at the 2012 Hedgeweek USA Awards. HedgeOp Compliance, an IMS Group company (IMS), completes the clean sweep of these awards globally, given IMS’s recent win of the same award for Europe.
The Hedgeweek USA Awards acknowledge the best hedge fund managers and providers in the North American hedge fund industry, and are voted for by Hedgeweek’s 41,000 subscribers. Industry professionals including institutional investors, fund administrators, prime brokers, custodians and advisers elected their top performers in a number of categories through an online peer review system.
Hedgeweek’s editorial team named the final award winners from a shortlist of those nominees that received the most votes from their readership. The Awards, in their third year, were held in a ceremony at the Gansevoort Hotel, New York on the 28 June 2012.
Bill Mulligan (pictured), chief executive, HedgeOp said: “With the vastly changing regulatory landscape of the American private fund industry, now is an especially gratifying time to be recognized with this award. The best regulatory advisory firm accolade is testament to the emphasis we place on providing the best possible service to our clients as they negotiate an increasing range of compliance issues. Our expertise and continued commitment to delivering this level of service will position us excellently as we offer guidance on the maze of upcoming private fund regulation.”
Michel van Leeuwen, group chief executive of IMS stated: “The merger with HedgeOp in January 2012 is delivering enormous value to our clients, which include global investment firms that require a strong partner across all time zones in order to prepare and weather the constant barrage of regulatory changes.”
