We make your fund business more lucrative and easier. Because we can look back on two decades of experience and have grown continuously over this period. As a leading independent banking service provider, we now offer you our services in Germany!
We have played an active part in the market consolidation of recent years: The first milestone was the integration of Munich-based FondsServiceBank (FSB) in May 2009. Fondsdepot Bank took over all sales partner contracts as well as the approximately 460,000 client contracts of FondsServiceBank for the custody and management of investment fund custody accounts. The migration of the custody accounts to the IT platform of Fondsdepot Bank was successfully completed in April 2010 "on time and on budget". The second milestone was the takeover of the B2B investment account business for SEB Bank and SEB Asset Management, announced at the beginning of 2010. Another important step in this direction was the transaction with VERITAS INVESTMENT TRUST in April 2010.
We have also recorded continuous growth in our retail custody account management - the cooperation with financial investment brokers on our open platform. Thanks to numerous new sales cooperation measures, we grew organically by around 20 per cent in 2010 alone.
Today, we look after more than one million custody accounts with a volume of around 40 billion euros in assets under administration for over 180 major sales partners, the sales organisations of major insurance companies and banks as well as numerous well-known capital management companies!
Since the company was founded, our main and processing location has been rooted in the region and is based in Hof, in Franconia. With our additional service locations in the financial centres of Munich and Frankfurt, we have our fingers on the pulse of the market and can respond optimally to the needs of our local clients.
Customers of Fondsdepot Bank expect a reliable, trustworthy financial partner. We are committed to the success of our business customers and to the growth of our bank. This commitment is also reflected in our key performance indicators.
