Traditional asset managers

We provide a full range of fund administration, custody, securities lending and banking services for traditional asset managers. During the entire lifecycle of a Fund and its underlying trades, managers have access to a comprehensive range of solutions tailored to the manager and a broad variety of securities services. They also benefit from additional services such as foreign exchange, FX hedging, and cash management that draw on the Bank’s global expertise

Challenge

In an ever changing market place with increased regulatory, client and competitor dynamics managers need service providers with the capability to adapt rapidly to change and to ensure that their needs and those of their investors and regulators can be met effectively. Outsourcing these services to the right provider is key and at DB Fund Services we offer the traditional manager a range of services all supported by Deutsche Bank’s global presence and local market expertise to ensure those needs are met.

Solutions

With a proven track record in servicing asset managers, a global award-winning platform and flexible solutions, we support different types of funds, strategies and asset classes across multiple jurisdictions. Our solutions, built on market leading technology and supported by our teams of experienced professionals from global locations include: fund administration services, trustee and fiduciary services and middle office support as well as custody services, FX hedging, cash management and securities lending. Our flexible models can provide managers with the necessary levels of process optimization while still offering scale and consistency to support growth.

Benefits

Given the challenges faced by today’s mutual fund managers, our solutions ensure that our clients benefit from our scale, expertise, talent and technology. DB Fund Services has the strength and flexibility to partner with our clients to meet those market challenges and to support our clients’ growth. Whether it’s generating additional income through securities lending, avoiding the costs associated with extensive infrastructure build or enhancement, or keeping up to date with increased regulatory reporting, our traditional asset management clients have one thing in common: by partnering with us, they are able to redirect scarce resources to core investment activities – aiming to increase the value they deliver to investors and shareholders.
