Shadow Accounting

IVP Shadow Accounting enables hedge funds and other asset managers to easily outsource full or partial accounting for significant gains in operational efficiency and scalability. This service is fully customizable for a wide range of funds and fund accounting software tools, and is especially critical for funds with complex investing strategies that prolong the traditional shadow accounting process.

The IVP Shadow Accounting team offers comprehensive daily and month-end services that follow fund administrators transaction by transaction, so funds can access a near-real-time view of results without the need to staff and retain an in-house shadow accounting team.
