Gemini was formed to provide financial institutions with access to multiple solutions for pooled investment products. We take the complexities out of entering new markets, and help advisors who are looking to challenge the status quo.

Our goal is to help investment companies expand distribution of strategies into channels that may not have previously been considered or thought possible. Gemini provides a single, integrated solution that supports the launching and servicing of mutual funds, hedge funds, ETFs, private equity funds, variable annuity trusts and state-sponsored 529 plans. We also offer customized structures designed to support the unique needs of pensions, endowments and foundations.
