LUXEMBOURG, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - RBC Dexia Investor Services has been chosen by Selector Management Fund to provide custody, fund administration, shareholder services and performance analytics for their existing SICAV funds in Luxembourg.
"RBC Dexia's solid and growing reputation in the offshore market and comprehensive service solution were both significant factors in choosing them to service our funds," said Douglas Geertz, Board Member, Selector Management Fund. "Whether it's helping to launch new funds or heeding their advice on significant distribution channels, their consultative approach makes it feel less like a client/vendor relationship and more like a business partnership."
Selector's mission is to make a multitude of top-tier managers available to institutional investors through a streamlined fund family. Many non-resident private investment funds based in foreign jurisdictions are looking to increase the marketability of their funds in the European market using the UCITS-SICAV format.
Selector recently launched an Asset Strategy fund in the UCITS III format that provides access to a global asset allocation fund with the benefits of a hedge fund but with daily liquidity in a mutual fund format.
"This represents an important win for RBC Dexia as Selector is a well established fund brand with a long-standing reputation," said Laurent Vanderweyen, managing director, Luxembourg for RBC Dexia Investor Services. "RBC Dexia has invested heavily in distribution support to ensure that fund managers like Selector can meet the burgeoning demand for these types of funds in geographic regions crucial to their continued success."
RBC Dexia Investor Services was recently ranked number one overall in the Global Investor Global Custody Survey for the sixth consecutive year (2004 - 2009). RBC Dexia also excelled in the annual R&M Consultants Global Custody Survey, and was ranked the number one service provider by fund managers and number one for Europe in Global Custodian's 2009 Global Custody Survey. RBC Dexia was also named Global Custody: Client Relationship Manager of the Year in ICFA's 2009 Global Awards.
