Ultimus selected to partner with Nomura Private Capital in launch of global firm’s first interval fund, Nomura Alternative Income Fund

Ultimus Fund Solutions, a leading independent provider of full-service technology-enhanced fund administration, accounting, and investor solutions, announced its collaboration with Nomura Private Capital in the launch of the firm’s first interval fund.

Globally Nomura services the needs of individuals, institutions, corporates and governments through its three business divisions: Retail, Investment Management, and Wholesale (Global Markets and Investment Banking). Nomura’s Investment Management division is expanding into intermediary distribution with a particular focus on RIAs, Banks, Trusts and family offices with the launch of the Nomura Alternative Income Fund (NAIFX). NAIFX is an interval fund that will provide clients with diversified exposure to private and public credit sectors for accredited investors and will aid the firm in reaching its goal to expand into private markets. Nomura took a deliberate approach in developing their first interval fund where Ultimus assisted through conception stages as they were reviewing the market. The two firms worked diligently through the product development process and Ultimus remained a strong partner throughout the launch.
