CSC, a global provider of business, legal, tax, and digital brand services, has acquired PEF Services LLC, a provider of technology-enabled fund administration services to private capital firms and their investors, including private equity, private debt, venture capital and U.S.-based small business investment companies.
“We’re very excited to welcome Anne Anquillare and the entire PEF team to CSC,” says CSC executive vice president John Hebert. “Their deep expertise in fund administration complements our existing capabilities, while their commitment to service excellence aligns well with our company culture.”
Anne Anquillare, CFA, chief executive officer and president of PEF, joins CSC as the head of CSC U.S. fund services. Beth Manzi, CPA, chief operating officer of PEF, joins CSC to lead U.S. operations for fund administration. Oleg Yablonovskiy, managing director of CSC U.S. fund services, will move into a strategic role to drive synergies between the businesses. CSC values that PEF is a woman-led business, and these new roles reinforce CSC’s strong commitment to diversity and inclusion.
“As market requirements expanded, we searched for the perfect partner to enhance the exceptional fund administration services and technology solutions we provide,” said Anquillare. “CSC already has tremendous resources supporting private capital firms on a global scale and we will be a natural extension of those services. In turn, CSC recognized PEF’s reputation for having one of the most skilled and respected teams in the industry, leading-edge portal technology, and thought leadership in private capital. Both firms share a commitment in supporting private capital firms with excellent customer service, innovative technology, and investing in our people.”
