NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 19, 2022--
Di Costa Partners (“DCP”), a strategic advisory and proxy solicitation company focused exclusively on registered funds (and a subsidiary of Morrow Sodali, the global shareholder engagement advisory services firm), has formally changed its name to Morrow Sodali Fund Solutions, effective immediately.
The newly branded Morrow Sodali Fund Solutions brings deep experience across the three major categories of U.S. registered funds – mutual funds, ETFs and closed-end funds. This complements Morrow Sodali’s expertise in providing strategic advice and shareholder services to corporate clients. As a thought leader in fund governance, Morrow Sodali Fund Solutions offers a unique analytical approach to deliver the best solutions for clients. Morrow Sodali’s integration of the DCP business and brand affirms the firm’s mission to bring together all the expertise, information, technology and resources that its clients require to engage effectively with shareholders and maximize support for their business initiatives.
Vincent Di Costa, Chief Executive Officer of Morrow Sodali Fund Solutions, said, “DCP’s rebranding reflects a longstanding partnership with Morrow Sodali and a shared vision for providing the best strategic advice and shareholder services to clients.” He continued, “We grew our business out of our understanding that asset managers and fund boards need an experienced adviser who understands the nuances of fund governance and takes a rigorous analytical approach. We are fortunate to have found likeminded experts at Morrow Sodali who have held themselves to the same high standards in serving corporations.”
Steve Messinger, President of Morrow Sodali Fund Solutions added, “the landscape for servicing both funds and corporations is going to change significantly over the next five years as technology democratizes and enables the process. Together as Morrow Sodali, we will be in a stronger position to advise our fund clients and deliver best in class solutions as a single entity.”
