Client Story

Beyond Hockey Stick Growth for an Upstart Fund Administrator

Empowering Centaur Fund Services

Founded in Dublin in 2010 with just one client and $200 million in assets under management (AUM), Centaur Fund Services had brave aspirations for its hedge fund services business–but it needed efficient, agile operations to support its growth ambitions. With FIS InvestOne powering its fund accounting and administration, Centaur was able to scale quickly, enter new markets, and manage complex asset classes and hybrid fund structures, while meeting increased demands for transparency and risk mitigation.
