At the same time, the number of clients leveraging the product rose to over 2,200, an increase of 28%.
“The number of unique funds that have been added to the service, combined with the continued increase in new clients adopting AIP has reinforced the value of automation for the alternative investment industry,” said Ann Bergin, DTCC Managing Director and General Manager, Wealth Management Services. “We remain committed to supporting our clients’ evolving needs by providing scalable infrastructure that automates critical processes, essential to advancing the alternative investments industry.”
