NAV Fund Administration Group (“NAV”) announces that it participated in a Hedge Fund Standards Board (HFSB) working group consisting of leading institutional investors, hedge fund managers and fund administrators, that was assembled to develop a standardized reporting framework for fund administrators.

The reporting framework has been published in the form of a standardized Administrator Transparency Report (ATR).
“Administrators report information in varying forms. This data is extremely important to the investing public and the template will help improve the quality and consistency of administrator transparency reports and facilitate risk aggregation and monitoring of investments,” said Nav Gupta, Chairman and President of NAV Group. “It was an honor to be a part of this working group and we were very aggressive in adopting this ATR as our firm standard.”
