Frankfurt-Trust selects CACEIS for Depositary and Custody Services
Following a request for proposal process, CACEIS was selected as servicing provider for Frankfurt-Trust Invest Luxembourg AG’s entire securities asset range, which amounts to €5.3 billion
As part of the deal, CACEIS took on the entire staff from the group’s former servicing provider, BHF–BANK International, (with the exception of the members of the management board), and started providing services from the beginning of November 2016.
Karl Stäcker, Chairman of the Management Board of Frankfurt-Trust, stated: "We undertook an extensive tender process which had a specific focus on the need for market-leading systems and a clear understanding of German clients’ requirements.” Stäcker added: “Ultimately, CACEIS’s expertise and proven business processes convinced us that they were the best choice for our company."
“Frankfurt-Trust is another important cross-border client for CACEIS’s securities business”, commented Holger Sepp, Head of Regional Coverage for Germany and Austria. “Our services are based on the Group’s global IT platform which operates in full compliance with the requirements of German clients. Furthermore, we are very pleased to have been selected by Frankfurt-Trust, and to have gained them as a new client for the CACEIS Group.”
Pierre Cimino, Managing Director of CACEIS in Luxembourg said: “This successful business integration, which includes the transfer of all staff members, once again demonstrates CACEIS’s industry-recognised capacity to plan and manage smooth migration processes with uninterrupted services for the end-investor.”
