GFS, which has $42 billion under administration, provides middle-office, operations and cash/collateral management services to alternative investment managers. GFS's client base includes firms trading in fixed income, credit, distressed, structured credit, macro, equity, commodities, CDO, CLO, private equity, private debt, real estate and hybrid structures.
