Swisscanto Asset Management International mandates SGSS for cross-border fund distribution

RELATED TOPICS​

Société Générale Securities Services (SGSS) has been mandated by Swisscanto Asset Management International to provide cross-border support services for fund distribution in five European countries.

Swisscanto Asset Management International will benefit from the support of SGSS’s distribution network of local representative agents and its central services hub in Luxembourg to distribute its funds in France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and the UK.
 
Swisscanto Asset Management International is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Swisscanto Holding Ltd, one of the largest fund providers in Switzerland. Part of the Zurcher Kantonalbank group, Swisscanto Asset Management International SA offers customers investment and pension solutions leveraging on Swiss know-how.
 
SGSS will help the client manage the administrative and legal process for registering the funds in each country where it will be distributed and provide investor inquiry monitoring and local market intelligence.
 
SGSS will also be responsible for coordinating the various local representative agents and provide a consolidated overview of fund activity to facilitate distribution of Swisscanto Asset Management International SA’s four funds and 26 sub funds in the five European countries. Swisscanto Asset Management International SA is currently considering expanding into countries such as Austria, Monaco and Singapore.
 
“Swisscanto’s decision shows the commitment of our teams in Luxembourg to provide the best service to asset managers and how SGSS leverages on one of the wider network to allow fund distribution all over Europe and beyond,” says Régis Veillet, Head of Business Development – Cross Border Fund Solution at Société Générale Securities Services in Luxembourg.
