A Good Night’s Sleep 

Although venture capital and new energy funds, may, at first blush, seem worlds apart, they have more in common than you might think. “When it comes to launching any fund, sometimes you just need someone to believe in your idea,” says Stephane Ries, Head of Business Development, Global Institutional & Professional Services, KBL Luxembourg. “Our clients sleep well at night because they know they have a trusted partner by their side, ready to do some of the heavy lifting for them.”

Ries’s team in Luxembourg works with a wide range of businesses. Such clients typically want to move quickly to develop and introduce unique market opportunities. KBL Luxembourg offers the full spectrum of services for such funds, whether plain vanilla or exotic, and has decades of experience supporting entrepreneurs seeking to bring their big idea to life.

“Alternative funds are interesting because not every bank is willing to take a chance on something that may start out on the smaller side. But we have seen funds that started out at €15 million quickly grow to €100 million and beyond. And we’ve seen great ideas, that struggled to find a home elsewhere, shine with our support.”

Especially when it comes to globally launching alternative funds, success depends upon a mix of pragmatism, commitment and imagination. When looking for a depositary and administrator for a fund, smaller and medium-sized asset managers seek a partner who can provide personalized, short-term support but also takes a long-term view of success. KBL Luxembourg’s spirit resonates with such clients.

Operating as a close-knit team, Global Institutional & Professional Services is focused on addressing every challenge rapidly, efficiently and to the highest standard. Reflected in that culture of collaboration, this team of seasoned professionals provides one-stop-shop solutions that save fund managers time and trouble. For 70 years, KBL Luxembourg has demonstrated its ability to meet the needs of every client – whether individual, professional or institutional.

Indeed, each investment fund manager who partners with KBL Luxembourg enjoys peace of mind that their back-office is in order and that their future is secure. A perfect recipe for a great night’s sleep.
