TwentyFour Asset Management LLP, an independent fixed-income specialist based in London with GB£1.7billion in assets under management, has selected Northern Trust to provide custody, fund accounting, financial reporting, compliance and company secretarial services to a new asset-backed securities fund, domiciled in Guernsey.
An asset backed security is one that derives its value and income payments from and collateralized by a specified pool of underlying assets, typically unable to be sold individually. By pooling assets into financial instruments, the risk of investing in the underlying assets is diversified.
This new asset-backed securities fund is just one of the many kinds of innovative fund structures suited to Guernseys flexible and pragmatic approach to financial regulation and highly developed professional support infrastructure, said Paul Cutts, country head, Northern Trust Channel Islands. As Guernseys largest fund administrator and custodian, Northern Trust is delighted to work with TwentyFour Asset Management, supporting them as they focus on capturing investment opportunities.
Northern Trust were willing to work closely with us to understand our unique requirements, said Nick Knight-Evans, partner and chief operating officer at TwentyFour Asset Management. Their experience in supporting other kinds of complex fund structures as well as their integrated range of asset servicing solutions, were key factors in their appointment
Northern Trust works with some of the most successful and innovative investment managers across the globe. It offers specialist fund administration services to a variety of traditional and alternative asset classes, including private equity funds, hedge funds, real estate funds, infrastructure funds and funds of funds.
