Private Equity Depositaries (PED) alongside its sister company, Private Equity Administrators (PEA), are supporting the needs of the industry. We deliver either a fully integrated depositary and administration service or a bespoke independent depositary service to Private Equity, Real Estate and Infrastructure Asset Managers.

  • In order to service our growing European client base PED has committed to delivering depositary services from all of its operational jurisdictions:

    Denmark – On 6th December 2013 PED’s Danish office received permission from the Danish FSA to perform the depositary functions to closed ended fund structures in Denmark under the law “lov om Forvaltning af alternative investeringsfonde”(Danish AIFMD), clause 46,3.

    Sweden – PED’s Swedish office is currently applying for permission to provide depositary functions to closed ended fund structures in Sweden from the Finansinspektionen. (As enacted in Sweden through the Swedish Alternative Investment Fund Managers Act (SFS 2013:561) (Sw. lagen (2013:561) om förvaltare av alternativa investeringsfonder)).

    Guernsey – PED is responding to the demand of clients for depositary services.

  • PED recognises there will be a ‘settling in period’ while mangers and stakeholders understand the direct and practical application of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD). Inevitably this will be followed by a review process after a year to ensure processes, policies and procedures are at their most effective and appropriate for the clients to whom we are providing AIFMD solutions.

    PED has established a series of Pier Group Forums to enable the sharing of best practise across the industry. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you wish to be a part of any of these innovative groups.
