Atlas Fund Services opens US Office

Atlas Fund Services, a $4B full service fund administrator headquartered in Curacao, breaks ground in the US opening their first location in Charlotte, NC.

“The move to the States is strategic for us,” says Danique Sprock, Managing Director of Atlas, “our objective is to service our US clients locally, and build our brand in the US as the newest and most distinguished fund administrator in our industry.” Atlas has over 100 clients globally, 30 of which are located in the US.

Heading up Fund Accounting and Operations in the new Charlotte office is Vice President April Spencer, CPA. April has over 18 years of financial services experience including 13 years within the Alternative Investments sector. Prior to joining Atlas, April served as CFO of a mortgage REIT overseeing $1.8 billion in assets including the establishment and management of all accounting, consolidation, financing, banking, and financial reporting functions. April also served as the VP of Finance at GSC Group and as a VP for JPMorgan’s Private Equity and Real Estate Fund Services where she was responsible for overseeing the accounting, reporting and operations of various Hedge Funds and Private Equity Funds. “With April’s background and expertise we’re very confident that she will be instrumental in the growth and success of the Charlotte office” noted Danique Sprock.

Another recent hire for Atlas is industry veteran Mark Catalano, formerly with Deutsche Bank and co-founder of Hedgeworks. “Mark will head up Business Development for Atlas and brings a tremendous amount of product knowledge, industry sales/relationships and business building ideas to the table,” says Maarten Robberts, Managing Director at Atlas, “we’re excited to have Mark on board to help build a strong US presence and client base.”
