DST Reaches Milestone In Alternative Space

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DST Systems, Inc., a global provider of solutions that process, and communicate the high-value information needed to manage life's most important business, today announced its U.S. Investment Recordkeeping solution is now supporting over 1.5 million accounts in the alternative investment space.

DST, the largest provider of third-party shareholder recordkeeping services in the mutual fund industry, also supports a full range of retail alternative investment products, including institutional and retail Hedge Funds, Closed End Interval Funds, Business Development Companies, Managed Futures, Limited Partnerships, and Non-Traded REITS.

"Companies in the financial services market have long depended on DST's industry experience, technological expertise, and service excellence to help them grow their businesses," says Chris Shaw, Operations Officer for DST's U.S. Investment Recordkeeping unit. "This remains true in a world that is quickly embracing new forms of alternative investment products."
