In this issue we take a look at the shifting prime brokerage landscape in light of a tumultuous two years for the space which has seen exits, scandals and a renewed approach to risk management which has truly shaken up the industry. In addition we explore the ever growing private markets space - once a cottage industry and now a very large one awash with institutional money, but with this comes new responsibilities and challenges as private markets continue to ascend to new heights. Our final in-depth feature looks at the trillion dollar club within the fund administration market as a booming space has sprouted a fresh landscape of new providers, fund structures and services. Those at the top of the pile have taken full advantage of the purple patch, spawning a small clique of providers each now overseeing over $1 trillion worth of assets. Our surveys include some of our flagship areas of research with the Prime Brokerage Survey, Hedge Fund Administration Survey and Private Equity Administration survey.
