Depositary Services

Introduced by Eva Devine,
Group Head of Depositary Services

If you’re an alternative investment fund manager undertaking investment activities in the EU, you will likely need to comply with most, if not all, aspects of the AIFM Directive. This includes the requirement to appoint a depositary to oversee the operation of your funds.

Following the implementation of the AIFM Directive, we launched a depositary function tasked solely with providing depositary services, building upon our existing systems and controls. Delivered within a controlled environment, our services support both EU and non-EU managers of both EU and non-EU funds, whether established under the AIFM Directive or other relevant national legislation.
