Leading fund administrator expands to Minnesota
(February 25, 2019) – FD Fund Administration (FD-FA), a leading provider of outsourced fund administration services, announced today the opening of a new office in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

“The team joining FD Fund Administration is well-versed in all aspects of fund accounting, operations, and compliance and we are excited to continue leveraging their knowledge and abilities through our relationship with FD-FA. This strategic opportunity allows the team to use the extensive experience gained through their long tenure at Wayzata to service other private equity firms in Minneapolis and beyond,” said Pat Halloran, Managing Partner and founder of Wayzata Investment Partners.
