HONG KONG, May 24 /CNW/ - RBC Dexia said today that it has been selected by leading managed futures fund provider Superfund to provide fund administration, custody and shareholder registry services to five master/feeder funds now being marketed to Asian investors.
"With Asia being a specific part of our growth strategy, it was imperative our service provider has on the-ground capabilities and an excellent local reputation for providing superior client service," said Markus Weigl, Executive Officer at Superfund. "As we look to expand and launch new funds in the region, it gives us comfort knowing RBC Dexia will be there to offer guidance and support our growth."
"As companies like Superfund look to expand their offering into Asia, our local knowledge and ability to provide a complete client service experience will contribute to both the funds and the fund company's success," said Scott McLaren, Head of Asia Pacific Sales and Distribution at RBC Dexia.
