RELATED TOPICS​

Fund Channel, a European cross-border fund distribution platform, has extended its presence to Asia with the opening of a branch in Singapore.

Based in Luxembourg with an office also in Switzerland, the joint venture owned by Amundi Group (50.04 per cent) and BNP Paribas Investment Partners (49.96 per cent) now offers to distributors of Asian funds support services for the management of distribution contracts with asset managers.
 
These services consist of regulatory monitoring, optimising revenues by assisting them in the calculation, monitoring and commission payments for the distribution of funds.
 
Fund Channel currently supports over 100 institutional clients in their cross-border fund distribution activity across a dozen European countries. Its B2B distribution platform administers around 45,000 funds from over 400 management companies.
 
“We are specialised in services for distributors who wish to maintain full control in their choice of product distributed whatever their choice of fund manager, but also their order routing and custodian services," says Richard Lepère (pictured), managing director of Fund Channel. "We simplify the legal work required for implementing distribution agreements, monitor regulatory requirements and apply a systematic process to deliver over 90 per cent of the distribution fees within 90 days following the quarter-end.”
