Gen II eyes expansion with new Boston office

The fund administrator’s third office will be managed by a former State Street exec.

Gen II has opened an office in Boston which will be led by newly-appointed managing director Shaun Buckley.

Buckley joins the fund administrator from State Street, where he was responsible for private equity fund administration and reporting across an institutional client base. His hire follows that of Lee Ann Kidd as director of business development in February.

The Boston office is Gen II’s third; it already has a presence in New York and San Francisco.

Earlier this year the fund administrator launched an automated Institutional Limited Partners’ Association fee template reporting process, designed to simplify the transfer of guideline data between investors and fund managers.

Gen II was founded in 2009 and covers over $150 billion of private capital and reporting to more than 9,000 investors.
