SS&C GlobeOp Forward Redemption Indicator: November notifications 4.90%
"SS&C GlobeOp's Forward Redemption Indicator for November 2015 of 4.90% rose from 2.96% in October 2015 primarily due to seasonal factors," said Bill Stone, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, SS&C Technologies. "The months of November and December typically show the highest readings of the year for the Forward Redemption Indicator due to year-end rebalancing. Looking at the comparison on a year-over-year basis, the November 2015 redemptions of 4.90% were actually lower than 5.05% for November 2014 and, in fact, were the lowest of any November since 2011. This result is consistent with other recent data indicating an improving underlying trend in overall hedge fund allocations, even as investors rebalance their portfolios."
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 December 21, 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.
