J.P. Morgan Is Top-Rated In Private Equity Fund Administration Survey


J.P. Morgan Private Equity Fund Services called “excellent” and “top notch”

New York - J.P. Morgan was ranked as a top provider of private equity fund administration, according to a key industry survey by Global Custodian magazine.

J.P. Morgan received best-in-class recognition across 43 service categories, securing more top ratings than any other administrator, according to the Global Custodian 2008 Private Equity Fund Administration Survey. The firm was rated “excellent” and “top notch” for the second year in a row by private equity fund managers. “J.P. Morgan has somehow managed to improve on the already astonishingly high scores of a year ago. In every service area, the averages are either excellent or as close as makes no difference,” the magazine said.

J.P. Morgan received the highest rankings for client service, fund establishment and structuring, capital drawdowns, investment execution, accounting and reporting to general and limited partners, distributions, regulatory reporting and compliance, corporate secretarial and technology.

“J.P. Morgan Private Equity Fund Services originated from J.P. Morgan Partners, a premier private equity shop. We are gratified that we have maintained a deep understanding of the client base, and have earned a reputation for exceptional service delivery,” said James Hutter, global business executive for J.P. Morgan Private Equity Fund Services. “In these uncertain times, private equity firms may want to hire a strong, global administrator, so they have more time to focus on their core business.”

J.P. Morgan was ranked particularly high for client service and relationship management with one client saying: “I feel that I can rely on the manager of [my] account to respond any time of the day, night or weekend.” “We felt very confident when selecting [J.P. Morgan] and have since developed a very solid working relationship,” another client said.

J.P. Morgan provides services to more than 200 funds managing $200 billion in alternative assets. It has offices in New York, London, Sydney, San Francisco, Chicago and Dallas. This summer, J.P.
