Expertise in measuring risk and performance

Risk control and performance measurement are of critical importance for Asset Servicing. We have independent teams of experts for both.

 

Advanced risk assessment
Risk control is one of our core competencies. It is carried out by a team of over 40 specialists who are independent from portfolio management. Our experts ensure the continuous measurement, monitoring and assessment of significant risks while taking into consideration any legal requirements or contractual limitations.

Scalable performance attribution
We measure performance both in absolute terms and relative to a benchmark and calculate the performance attribution. More than 1,000 indices can be combined flexibly to create customised benchmarks. We calculate performance at the fund level using the BVI method. Performance indicators for countries or industries, maturities or rating classes are based on daily time-weighted returns for individual securities.

In-depth reporting system

Our standard and customised reporting gives a complete representation of all factors relevant to the decision-making process and meeting supervisory requirements.

 

We offer our investors a sophisticated reporting platform with flexible output formats and interfaces. The broad scope of reporting services is a particular strength of our company.

Special features of our reporting:

 

  • Creation of reports customised to individual parameters
  • Inclusion of direct investments
  • Risk reports
  • Interface solutions
  • Fulfilment of your specific reporting requirements

Comprehensive support concept

We follow a holistic approach in client support to ensure the satisfaction of our investors.

 

High quality standards
Two people are assigned to support each of our clients. The principle of dual control allows us to meet our quality standards and to provide continuous quality assurance.

Constant contact partners

Your personal client consultant is there to provide you with advice in all situations. Deputisation arrangements ensure continuous support by trusted contacts.
 
Extensive resources
In addition to our product specialists, all the capabilities of a large bank are placed at your disposal. For instance, you have access to our well-established expertise in economics, legal matters and product-related taxation.

Complementary services

Our Asset Servicing offers a range of additional services that can be combined flexibly.
