The HFMWeek European Hedge Fund Services Awards are one of the most prestigious annual events in the alternative investment calendar. Hosted by HFMWeek, a leading hedge fund news organisation, the Hedge Fund Services Awards recognise and reward hedge fund service providers that have delivered excellent, innovative services over the past year.

Capital Support have been shortlisted in four categories at this year’s awards. Category winners will be announced at the European Hedge Fund Services Awards ceremony, which takes place at the Hurlingham Club in London on Thursday 27th April.

Hedge Fund Services Awards Shortlist

Capital Support’s submission to this year’s HFMWeek European Hedge Fund Services Awards has seen us shortlisted in four categories: –

  • Best Cloud Computing Solution
  • Best Outsourced Tech Infrastructure Provider
  • Best Technology Firm – Client Service
  • Best Technology – Overall

Our submission focussed on three key areas: Infrastructure Management services, the Managed Security suite, and the latest evolution of our Private Cloud managed hosting solution. All of these areas have been developed over the past 12 months to meet the needs of our alternative investment management clients.

Service Development in 2017

Our Infrastructure Management services are for private cloud, public cloud, and in-house IT systems. They provide support for infrastructure design, documentation, management, patching and updates, monitoring and management, best practices, capacity planning, and specialist escalation.

2017 has seen a continued rise in the number of cyber-attacks suffered by businesses across all sectors. Finance sector firms are amongst the most prized targets for cyber criminals. To support our clients we have continued to develop our range of Managed Security services.

Our premier cloud hosting solution, the Private Cloud, continues to provide industry-leading performance, uptime, and security, and in 2017 we have launched the third generation of the Private Cloud. This next generation cloud hosting platform is hosted in Tier III+ data centres that are fully owned and managed by Six Degrees Group. It features our best ever security, availability, and performance.

If you would like to learn more about the services for which we have been shortlisted, feel free to contact us.
