DATA SNAPSHOT: The world’s most active fund administrators

The world's most active private equity and debt fund administrators, ranked by assets under administration and number of funds, according to eVestment's latest survey.

SS&C Technologies came out at the top of 2018’s most active private equity and debt fund administrators, according to eVestment’s Alternative Fund Administration Survey.

Of the 26 fund administrators that responded to the survey, SS&C had the highest private equity and debt assets under administration in 2018, with just over $550 billion. It was followed by State Street, with $384 billion, and SEI, with $327.5 billion.

Overall, it seems to have been a good year for fund administrators – 17 of the 21 respondents experienced a growth in private equity and debt AUA from 2017, with the median firm growing by 11.35 percent.

Note: firms use different metrics to measure AUA, with some counting committed capital, some counting invested capital, some combining invested and remaining committed and some counting gross asset value.
