Ultimus Supports Launch of CAZ Strategic Opportunities Fund

Ultimus Fund Solutions – an independent provider of full-service, technology-enhanced fund administration, accounting, and investor solutions – collaborated with CAZ Investments to support the launch of the CAZ Strategic Opportunities Fund. This collaboration marks the debut of the first publicly offered vehicle by CAZ Investments, a private market investment firm managing $6 billion in assets and serving 200 global private equity allocators.

Structured as a tender offer fund, the CAZ Strategic Opportunities Fund is designed to encourage long-term investing by allowing investment managers to allocate less liquid assets. The tender offer structure provides investors with the security of quarterly liquidity options while maintaining a focus on long-term capital growth.

With its foundation as a global allocator to private equity and its substantial buying power, CAZ Investments says the CAZ Strategic Opportunities Fund represents a significant step toward providing sophisticated investors with more inclusive access to high-quality private market investments.

“We are very pleased to collaborate with Ultimus on the launch of the CAZ Strategic Opportunities Fund. Their consultative approach to vehicle development and specialization in navigating [Securities and Exchange Commission] registration has been invaluable in bringing our new fund to market, and we look forward to expanding our relationship as we expand our activities in the investment landscape,” said Christopher Zook, chief investment officer of CAZ Investments.

The Strategic Opportunities Fund aims to achieve a well-balanced portfolio by primarily focusing on private market investments, such as private equity and private credit. According to Ultimus and CAZ Investments, this strategic focus on private markets enables the fund to offer a level of diversification beyond what traditional public investments like stocks and bonds can provide.

“At Ultimus, we pride ourselves on empowering our clients with innovative fund administration solutions, deep registered fund experience, leading-edge technology, and a consultative approach. This collaboration highlights the monumental growth in the market for retail alternatives, and we are excited to support CAZ as they launch their registered offering,” said Sean McLean, senior vice president, retail alternatives fund accounting at Ultimus.

Ultimus Fund Solutions provides full-service fund administration, accounting, middle office, and investor services to support the launch and servicing of registered funds, private funds, and public plans. The company also offers structures designed for pensions, endowments, foundations, and other large institutions. The firm services more than 1,800 traditional and alternative funds.
