A depositary is a requirement for many AIFs under the AIFM Directive and it undertakes a number of prescribed responsibilities. The depositary is required to act honestly, fairly, professionally, independently and in the interests of the AIF and its investors.

JTC Luxembourg has been granted a depositary licence by Luxembourg’s Ministry of Finance, asserting our capabilities to support a growing number of fund managers in Europe. We also offer a non-EU solution through our independent AIFM in Guernsey, which can also offer “depositary-lite” services, and are able to offer depositary services in the UK through our partnership with Indos.
