The European Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) requires alternative investment funds (AIFs) established in Europe, as well as non-European AIFs marketed to European or UK investors, to appoint a depositary.


The depositary performs an important oversight function over the operations of an AIF and strengthens the AIF’s governance model. It is required to act honestly, fairly, professionally, independently and in the interests of the AIF and its investors.

Under the requirements of the AIFMD there are several functions that the depositary undertakes:

  • Cash flow monitoring
  • Safe keeping of custody assets
  • Record keeping and verification of non-custody assets
  • Oversight (including oversight of valuation of the AIF and compliance with investment restrictions and leverage limits)

“Our ability to offer depositary services in three key jurisdictions showcases our commitment to providing our clients with best-in-class solutions driven by technical expertise.”
