Private equity, real estate & infrastructure solutions

Private equity, real estate & infrastructure funds are evolving rapidly. There is a need for more transparent reporting to meet regulatory requirements, the demands of Limited Partners and to manage risk effectively. MUFG Investor Services offers managers a partnership based on security and comprehensive support.

Private equity, real estate & infrastructure funds continue to attract capital, but today’s investors are far more selective. They are scrutinizing fund platforms and becoming much more demanding about the frequency and quality of reporting. That, combined with stricter regulation, is increasing the administrative burden on managers. In a highly competitive market, managers are increasingly focused on operational efficiency.

At MUFG Investor Services, we provide a range of solutions for private equity, real estate & infrastructure funds, from full outsourcing to in-house support. Our flexible, comprehensive and global services leverage the strength and diverse capabilities of the greater MUFG network.

We provide exceptional service tailored to specific client requirements. Our experienced finance and accounting professionals are across the globe. With established offices in strategic locations close to every major financial center we provide the coverage you need in any jurisdiction.

A partnership with MUFG Investor Services means you can stay focused on generating returns for investors and identifying new opportunities to help fuel your growth ambitions.

General Partner

General Partners from all private equity, real estate & infrastructure asset classes and strategies, geographies, and sizes will benefit substantially from the administration and asset services detailed below. The investment team’s responsibility is to focus on their investments and investors. The ability to outsource the administration portion of those activities allows investment managers to do just that. With increasing demands for information by Limited Partners requires systems and expertise that we have at MUFG Investor Services.

Limited Partners

Globally, Limited Partners have increasingly varied mixes of investments (primary fund investments, secondary interests, fund of funds, direct co-investments, etc.) and complex structures in their alternatives portfolios. Such investors — particularly those with significant allocations to alternatives — also have robust governance responsibilities and reporting obligations. Information requirements may include diversification and risk metrics that reflect details of the investee funds, including portfolio company operating metrics. Limited Partners are also being asked for operating information such as fees and incentives paid to underlying managers. We have long had a focus on collecting and reporting detailed information about investments and we are at the leading edge of industry developments in timeliness and depth of reporting.

Our locations

We have service centers in Canada, Cayman Islands, Dallas, Ireland, Jersey, Luxembourg, Singapore and the United States along with business development offices in Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the United States, to ensure we support you throughout the investment lifecycle.
