UMB Fund Services, Inc. (UMBFS) announced that the Investment Managers Series Trust (IMST) surpassed the $3 billion mark in net assets at the end of September, just months after reaching $2 billion earlier this year.
The IMST, which was started in late 2007, has continued to grow rapidly over the past two years through a combination of asset growth and the addition of new funds to the trust. While it took more than three years to reach the $1 billion mark in mid-2011, it took just over seven months to reach $2 billion and less than seven months to reach $3 billion.
The IMST is offered through a partnership between UMBFS and Mutual Fund Administration Corporation, a California-based firm specializing in multiple-series trust administration.
