John comments, “While managers are focused on ensuring that their current banking arrangements are safe and secure, there is a continuing trend for managers and administrators seeking solutions to diversify fund banking relationships to avoid overreliance on a single institution. As they do so, I am receiving increasing feedback that both administrators and managers are struggling to find the right banking partner or are finding it difficult to open institutional bank accounts in an expeditious manner to meet the needs of the fund, its management company, and its investors.”
