    Benefits of an experienced partner

    Maintaining compliant with the AIFMD and UCITS directive presents many challenges for fund managers. In addition to securing a depositary solution for the fund’s assets, managers are also responsible for meeting the reporting obligations and investment restriction compliance as laid out by the applicable regulations.

    Navigating these regulations can seem overwhelming, particularly if it’s your first time launching an Irish product. As your full-service depositary partner, we will help guide you through your options and monitor the complexities for you.

    U.S. Bank Depositary Services is authorised and supervised by the Central Bank of Ireland in the provision of services to Irish schemes.
