Putnam invests $6.5 million in fund administrators

Putnam said they would also assist DPM in expanding their client base and share market knowledge.

DPM provides middle-office, back-office and risk administration services to alternative investment companies. It said it has increased its assets under administration by 80% in 2003, exceeding $18 billion. It serves approximately 70 clients and 300 individual funds, with operations in six countries.

In December 2002, Putnam forecast that hedge fund assets would increase to $2 trillion by 2010. The move is part of the firm’s effort to provide institutional investors with high-quality hedge fund-related products and services, Putnam said.

“We will be more than merely an investor. Our goal is a strategic partnership between two industry-leading companies,” said Kym Anthony, chairman of Putnam.
