LONDON, March 16, 2012 /CNW/ - RBC Dexia Investor Services has scooped influential industry magazine The Hedge Fund Journal's 2012 award for 'Leading UCITS Custodian and Fund Administrator' for the second year in a row. The awards were presented at an event held on March 15, 2012 in London to celebrate the contribution of leading firms from the European hedge fund community.
Olivier Laurent, Director Product Management, Alternatives Investments for RBC Dexia, who accepted the award, commented: "It is always rewarding when the industry, through highly regarded publications such as The Hedge Fund Journal, recognises the added value of our business approach. We are committed to offering our clients a world class service by combining our knowledge of alternatives with our expertise with UCITS and are delighted to repeat our success from last year."
