Capital Support, a Six Degrees Group company, has been named the Best Global Cloud Services Provider at the Hedgeweek Global Awards 2016.

The Hedgeweek Global Awards 2016 honour businesses operating in the alternative investment market, and – uniquely – are based entirely on peer review. With a readership made up predominantly of Directors and CEOs of Asset Managers, Capital Support’s Best Global Cloud Services Provider award demonstrates its strong reputation within the sector.

Capital Support’s hosting platform, the Private Cloud, provides secure, regulatory compliant server hosting services to hedge funds and private equity firms based in the UK, North America, Europe and the Middle East.

By providing alternative investment managers with dedicated resources that are fully segregated from other customers, the Private Cloud allows firms to benefit from high performance, uptime and availability whilst offering the flexibility to respond rapidly to market demands.

Carl Chapman, Chief Operating Officer, explains that “we see the Best Global Cloud Services Provider award as significant, as the Hedgeweek Global Awards are judged by our peers in the industry. As a business we work hard to meet and exceed the regulatory and operational requirements of our alternative investment manager customers, and to have this recognised in such a way is testament to our continuing success.

Following our acquisition by Six Degrees Group in 2015, we have been taking the business on a continued path of stability, growth and integration. As we work together to develop our service portfolios, we expect the services we deliver to our customers to continue to strengthen throughout 2016 and beyond.”
