AI market round up: GlobeOp and Archeus settle dispute
Hedge fund administrator GlobeOp and hedge fund Archeus have agreed to an amicable settlement of the claim filed by Archeus in July. Archeus shut down last year, blaming its closure on GlobeOp for its poor administration services. These, the fund said, had reduced investor confidence and led to redemptions. The filing highlighted the vulnerability of hedge fund counterparties as being held responsible for client losses, and so the settlement is largely welcomed by the hedge fund administration industry.
