Successful and Seamless Transition: K2 Asset Management Partners with Computershare Fund Services for Unit Registry Solution
MELBOURNE, Australia, Oct. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — K2 Asset Management partnered with Computershare Fund Services to achieve the successful and seamless transition of K2′s unit registry administration to Computershare. Computershare’s unit registry solution provides a suite of online capabilities catering to K2, their investors and their financial advisers needs.
K2 simultaneously undertook the unit registry transition to Computershare with their corporate rebranding project, adding an additional level of complexity to the project for both parties. Both the transition and rebranding have been extremely successful since implementation in mid-September.
“We chose to partner with Computershare because of their extensive expertise in the registry space and Computershare’s experience in managing client transitions. The increased level of positive investor experience provided by Computershare in both their online and reporting functions enabled K2 to align our corporate rebranding with the transition of our unit registry administration” commented Hollie Wight, Executive Director, K2 Asset Management.
“We are delighted to be working with K2 Asset Management and be in a position to extend our capabilities to K2 and their key stakeholders” commented Warwick Angus, Executive Director, Computershare Fund Services.
Computershare’s Melbourne-based national technology team tailored their unit registry system, Trust Architect, to meet K2′s specific reporting requirements.
