MATT Wilson

Founder and President

I'm a seasoned professional in fund administration and fund accounting with 14 years of private equity and venture capital experience. My particular areas of expertise include maximizing fund accounting software capabilities, complex waterfall models, interpreting LPAs, and client service. I have spent most of my career working for a select group of very successful fund administrators in the US of varying sizes and strategies. I have also worked at one of the largest public global investment managers, Fortress Investment Group.

I have been fortunate enough to build a fund administration business from the ground up as a co‐founder of Mainstream Fund Services. I've stabilized and scaled a boutique firm like VMS Group, and was a key contributor at SS&C Inc. I've worked with fund managers both big and small, some with hundreds of millions in AUM and large institutional investors, and others who were raising their first fund with a handful of high-net worth individuals. I've worked with them all.

From my experience, I have learned that there is a delicate yet important balance between utilizing institutional grade technology, implementing industry best practices and procedures, adhering to industry regulations and reporting guidelines, while still being flexible enough to provide fund managers with the support and customization needed to satisfy their team and their investors. However, I have always believed that providing superb customer service is crucial to having a successful fund admin or consulting business. What I am most proud of in my career is the relationships and trust that I have built with every one of my previous clients, many of which still carry on to this day. As a client of Barrier Crest you can be confident in knowing that I will always strive to provide you with the best service possible, to invest my time into building a successful relationship, and to share my technical knowledge and expertise in a way that will create an efficient and cohesive team between both of us.
