Epitome’s hedge fund service is targeted at mid- and large-sized hedge funds with a variety of strategies. Over the years, we have developed experience in delivering accounting and administration services to hedge funds. We cover an extensive range of instruments from exchange-traded to OTC  derivative instruments. We at Epitome continuously work on learning new products in order to meet challenges posed by introduction of new products in the hedge fund portfolios and developing in-house proprietary valuation models for products such as credit default swaps and interest rate swaps.
