SS&C GlobeOp Forward Redemption Indicator: August notifications 3.46%
"SS&C GlobeOp's Forward Redemption Indicator of 3.46% for August 2015 reflects mainly seasonal influences in comparison to the 2.08% reported in July of 2015," said Bill Stone, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, SS&C Technologies. "It's noteworthy that on a year-over-year basis, the 3.46% for August of 2015 is sharply lower than August of 2014 which came in at 4.19%. In particular, there was a decline in near-term redemptions, which together with other recent SS&C GlobeOp index results, suggests that hedge funds are benefiting from the recent elevated market volatility."
The SS&C GlobeOp Forward Redemption Indicator represents the sum of forward redemption notices received from investors in hedge funds administered by SS&C GlobeOp on the SS&C GlobeOp platform, divided by the AuA at the beginning of the month for SS&C GlobeOp fund administration clients on the SS&C GlobeOp platform. Forward redemptions as a percentage of SS&C GlobeOp's assets under administration on the SS&C GlobeOp platform have trended significantly lower since reaching a high of 19.27% in November 2008. The next publication date is September 22, 2015.
Published on the 15th business day of the month, the SS&C GlobeOp Forward Redemption Indicator presents a timely and accurate view of the redemption pipeline for investors in hedge funds on the SS&C GlobeOp administration platform.
