Fund Channel, a major player among European fund distribution platforms, has extended its presence to Asia with the opening of a branch in Singapore.
Based in Luxembourg with an office also in Switzerland, this joint venture owned by Amundi Group (50.04%) and BNP Paribas Investment Partners (49.96%) now offers to distributors of Asian funds support services for the management of distribution contracts with asset managers. These services consist of regulatory monitoring, optimizing revenues by assisting them in the calculation, monitoring and commission payments for the distribution of funds.
Fund Channel currently supports over 100 institutional clients in their cross-border fund distribution activity across a dozen European countries. Its B2B distribution platform administers around 45,000 funds from over 400 management companies.
“We are specialized in services for distributors who wish to maintain full control in their choice of product distributed whatever their choice of fund manager, but also their order routing and custodian services" states Richard Lepère, Managing Director of Fund Channel. "We simplify the legal work required for implementing distribution agreements, monitor regulatory requirements and apply a systematic process to deliver over 90% of the distribution fees within 90 days following the quarter-end.”
With more than €60 billion in assets distributed, Fund Channel ranks among the top 3 international distribution platforms in Europe. Through its new branch in Singapore, the company has an objective to reach €5 billion in assets distributed within 4 years.
