Citi appointed as depositary for Kames Capital UK funds
December 20, 2018

Citi reports this morning that it has been appointed by Kames Capital to provide depositary services for its UK fund range, representing approximately 7 billion in assets.

Kames Capital is a UK-based investment management business that is part of Aegon Asset Management, managing 42.5 billion on behalf of UK and international clients, including pension funds, financial institutions, charities, wealth managers, family offices and individuals.

The mandate expands the existing strategic relationship between Aegon and Citi across a wide range of products and solutions including depositary services across Kames Capital's Ireland and Netherlands fund ranges, as well as fund accounting, middle office, custody and agency securities lending services.

Ross Bradley, Head of Investment Support Europe for Aegon Asset Management, noted: "The move to a single provider for depositary services is an important milestone for Kames Capital and our clients. It allows us to benefit from Citi's leading platform and achieve greater consistency in our operating model while enhancing the investor experience across all of our EU funds."
