Overview

Tap the experience and expertise of the UK’s largest trustee and depositary. With almost 80 years of experience, we serve over 1,100 Collective Investment Schemes (‘CIS’). That’s around 42% of the UK-authorised CIS industry – more than any of our competitors. We work with Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs), Open-ended Investment Companies (OEICs), Undertakings for Collective Investments in Transferable Securities (UCITS) and other UK CIS.

We’re the only independent depositary to UK CIS. That means we have no potential conflicts of interest. This can make a big difference for our clients. 

Products and services built upon wide-ranging experience

 

A variety of solutions: TDS serves a range of UK CIS, including UCITS, AIFs (AIFMD-authorised), investment trusts and unauthorised schemes. We have 25 years’ specialist experience with property/real estate funds.

Relationship managers and dedicated experts: A relationship manager starts by getting to know a client’s business needs in order to tailor the right solutions. Our products and services could draw upon the diverse expertise of our in-house teams: risk & compliance, legal, custody monitoring, distribution reconciliation and derivatives.

  • benchmark custodians, offering our clients transparent and independent MI
