CACEIS, one of largest asset servicing groups in Europe, is delighted to announce a new partnership with Investlinx Investment Management to provide Depositary, Custody, Fund Administration & Execution services for Investlinx ICAV, a recently-launched Irish UCITS ETF.
CACEIS in Ireland is keen to broaden the geographic scope of its Exchange Trade Fund services. Already administering over €100 billion in ETFs domiciled across Europe, it has developed specialised servicing capabilities designed to meet ETF promoters’ unique requirements.
In addition to CACEIS’ core asset servicing capabilities, Investlinx ICAV will also benefit from CACEIS’ client-driven ETF solutions and tools, including TEEPI ETF, a dedicated AP order portal. The ETF solutions leverage both automated systems to provide integrated flows from order placement to settlement, and CACEIS’ partnership with Europe’s leading Portfolio Composition File (PCF) production firm ULTUMUS for the generation and issuance of PCFs.
The combination of CACEIS’ efficient core services, ETF-specific tools, and the follow-the-sun servicing model enables Investlinx’s NAVs and PCFs to be generated and sent out prior to market openings, which meets the specific requirements expressed by Investlinx during the co-creation phase of the bespoke operating model’s design.
Matteo Solfanelli, CEO of Investlinx Investment Management Ltd said “Investlinx is the first company in Europe to offer actively-managed ETFs which directly invest in both equity and fixed income securities without reference to any benchmark index. This pioneering move enables investors to benefit from the advantages of active and diversified portfolio management while enjoying the lower costs associated with ETFs. After a long selection process, we determined that CACEIS had the technical expertise and client-centric attitude that enabled us to launch and market our distinctive ETFs. Investlinx, and our investors alike, stand to gain from the strong partnership developed with the CACEIS group.”
Paddy Walsh, Head of Regional Coverage for Ireland, UK & US added, “We are excited to be collaborating with Investlinx Investment Management on their new Irish UCITS ETF range. Our respective teams have been working in close partnership for many months to the design this unique solution. This, together with its rapid implementation, cements our market position and showcases our extensive ETF servicing capabilities. We wish Investlinx every success marketing their new funds to their target investors, and look forward to supporting the ongoing development of their business.”
