WINDSOR, CT, June 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSNC) today announced that Hurricane Capital Advisors (Hurricane Capital), a global alternative investment management platform, has launched its operations with SS&C's front-to-back office solution. SS&C will provide fund administration, customized middle-office solutions, FIX connectivity, hosting and state-of-the-art order and execution management systems.

Our customers can focus on growing their business while we take care of the rest.”
Hurricane Capital expects to carry ten portfolio managers on the platform by July. The Hurricane Capital team is led by Adam Wolfberg, Ian Goodman, and Chris Napoli, who, collectively, bring more than 50 years of investment platform experience to the initiative. Mr. Wolfberg and Mr. Goodman both began their careers as portfolio managers at S.A.C. Capital, and both went on to create successful hedge fund enterprises. Mr. Napoli brings experience in specialty international financing and dealing expertise throughout emerging and developed Asia, Pan Europe, as well as global and domestic synthetics.
