Who We Are

TrustServe is a modern fund administrator dedicated to hedge, private equity, real estate, venture capital and family offices. TrustServe delivers better service and technology to alternative investment advisors and their investors.


TrustServe’s roots date to the early 1990s when Jorge de Cardenas co-founded Kaufman Rossin Fund Services. Soon after, Aaron Bernstein and Scott Merriam joined the team, and together they established the organization as a leading fund administrator. In 2016 they were acquired by a NYSE listed company.

The Problem

The customer service provided by today’s administrators is in decline. Today’s administrators prioritize acquisitions and quarterly earnings at the expense of their clients. This customer service problem is compounded by their reliance on outdated unscalable, legacy technology.

The Solution

Twenty five years after building a leading fund administrator known for client service, the founders joined forces to build a better fund administrator. TrustServe is a client-centric organization with an employee-first culture that leverages innovative technology.

Our Technology

Fintech is moving at the speed of light. Today’s administrators have not embraced this innovation and are prisoners of their outdated unscalable legacy systems.
TrustServe leverages modern technology. Our platform offers clients a suite of solutions covering accounting, CRM, investor portals, portfolio monitoring and business intelligence. Unlike most administrators, we provide clients access to our technology and their data. This helps clients to make more informed decisions and reduce operational expenses.
