About

A standard of excellence. A heritage of success.

The core Duquesne Fund Services team came together in 2000 as an integral part of one of the most successful hedge funds in history. When the fund closed in 2010, the core team stayed together, and used the approach and technology they perfected, to serve a select group of hedge funds and family offices that expect a sophisticated and trusted partner.

Intellectual capital

The tenure and deep experience of our professionals is a meaningful differentiator in today’s fund administration industry. Broad knowledge of industry dynamics, market and technology innovation, and the ever-changing regulatory landscape drives continual intellectual growth. This is a key strength we bring to each challenge.

Culture of client centricity

Duquesne has purposefully assembled complementary service and technology teams with cross-functional proficiencies to provide maximum synergy and continuity for our clients. This is further evidenced by our fully onshore business operation, in New York City and Pittsburgh, which we find essential to oversight and engagement.
