LONDON, March 24 /CNW/ - RBC Dexia Investor Services today announced that it has been appointed by Öhman Asset Management, the Swedish Asset Manager, to provide custody and fund administration services for newly launched Öhman High Yield Fund. The fund will concentrate on European and North American bonds although it has a global mandate.
This will be the first of Öhman's funds to use its new Luxembourg-based platform, bolstering its suite of funds and consolidating its strong reputation within the corporate bond market.
"RBC Dexia was a natural choice for us as we move onto our Luxembourg platform. RBC Dexia's local expertise and global reach, combined with its consultative approach, make it a compelling strategic fit for the further growth of our Luxembourg funds," commented Johan Malm, Managing Director of Öhman Asset Management.
Laurent Vanderweyen, Managing Director of RBC Dexia Luxembourg, said: "RBC Dexia's new venture with Öhman further strengthens our presence within the Nordic Asset Management market, particularly within offshore fund servicing. We look forward to supporting Öhman in its efforts to broaden its international distribution based on a new Luxembourg-domiciled fund platform."
