Fund Channel, the B2B fund distribution platform owned by Amundi, has reached a major milestone through the addition of fund-dealing capabilities to its offering for its client asset managers and fund distributors. The new services include order-routing, execution and safekeeping services that extend its core distribution and data offering.
As part of its commitment, Fund Channel also announces the appointment of Jean Vaz as Head of the Fund Dealing Team.
Fund Channel’s flexible and modular approach to services, proprietary or from third-party specialists, leads the growing demand from private banks and wealth managers to entrust their fund portfolio and leverage Fund Channel’s suite of services for fund distribution.
Pierre Adrien Domon, Chief Executive Officer of Fund Channel, states: “Facilitating fund transaction and distribution altogether is part of Fund Channel’s vision to expand added-value services and be the reference marketplace across the distribution value chain.”
