State Street Corporation and Vontobel have entered into a multi-year service agreement, where Vontobel Asset Management will use the State Street Alpha front-to-back investment servicing platform. 

The partnership will include front office technology, investment operation services, Alpha data services and liquidity risk solutions.

The agreement represents a new strategic partnership between State Street and Vontobel Asset Management, an active asset manager with global reach and a multi-boutique approach with more than CHF120 billion in assets under management (AUM). For Vontobel, it creates additional growth capacity while building out investment service excellence for its investment boutiques that actively manage assets for the clients of the investment house globally.

“We are delighted with Vontobel Asset Management becoming an important European client for State Street Alpha” says Jörg Ambrosius, head of Europe, Middle East and Africa, State Street. “Our platform integrates and streamlines the investment process to deliver efficiencies, insights, speed and execution that support asset managers across every aspect of their investment lifecycle. By leveraging the platform’s open infrastructure, Vontobel AM can streamline day-to-day processes and operations to optimise returns and focus on future growth.”

“We are happy to be partnering with State Street to further enhance the investment servicing platform for our Investment Boutiques,” says Felix Lenhard, COO, Member of the Executive Board, Vontobel. “With this solution Vontobel will benefit from access to a robust, high quality and scalable operating model that will provide best in class services to our portfolio mangers and supporting functions. We will also be able to improve servicing and onboarding of our clients as a result of expanded connectivity with custodians and brokers.”
