Calamos Hits the Street For More Back-Office Servicing

Reported by Patricia Kelly

State Street must have hit its stride with Naperville, Illinois-based Calamos Investments. On Monday, Calamos disclosed plans to consolidate all of its back-office operations -- including custody, fund administration and securities lending services for its mutual funds -- with State Street. Boston-based Barrington Partners assisted Calamos in the due diligence and selection process.

As part of the plan, State Street will assume back-office responsibilities for all of Calamos' collective fund structures, including open and closed end mutual funds, Dublin UCITS and private funds exceeding $21 billion in assets.

“By further consolidating our operations with State Street, it provided us with a seamless model which has resulted in additional efficiencies in our processes, enabling us to better serve our clients,” stated Nimish Bhatt, senior vice president of Calamos Advisors LLC and CFO of Calamos Funds. “State Street understands our complex investments and associated accounting requirements. The consistency and expertise of its fund accounting and fund administration teams also ensure continuity of service quality for our funds.”

State Street has been providing back-office services to Calamos for five years.
