For real assets, we offer institutional clients a broad, diversified range of services as depository for alternative investment funds (AIF) – for both German and Luxembourg fund structures. Through our extensive experience as a custodian bank and depository, we have successively developed and expanded our services for real assets over many years. Our depository services team now benefits from the skills of more than 25 highly qualified employees.

Tailored support for your AIFs

Our expertise enables us to deliver the highest level of professional, tailored support for your AIFs. In so doing, we conduct the controls required under the Capital Investment Code/AIFMD for all types of AIFs that involve safekeeping, portfolio management, control, and settlement.

Task categorization

  • Verification of title to the individual assets of the AIF
  • Portfolio management of assets that cannot be kept in custody, such as real estate, private equity, other tangible assets, and open-end and closed-end AIFs
  • Monitoring of, and compliance with, the statutory and contractual terms and conditions of investment applicable to each AIF
  • Conducting general reviews of the legality of all transactions performed by, or on behalf of, the AIF, for example, relating to transactions such as acquisition and disposal, financing and encumbrances
  • Cash flow monitoring
  • Monitoring of fund certificate trading including production and monitoring of individual unit values
  • Monitoring of the contractually stipulated appropriation of earnings

  • Focus on investor protection: We offer high-grade, specialized, professional depository services with a thorough understanding of regulatory law (publications, comments, speaking engagements, etc.).
  • High level of expertise: Our client support team includes a highly experienced team of attorneys who can take definitive and independent decisions. Their services include contracting, onboarding, and individual transactions for the assets in the fund. This high level of expertise also extends to our back office units.
  • Extensive range of asset classes on offer in more than 50 jurisdictions: The spectrum includes real estate, private equity, renewable energies, aircraft/aviation, infrastructure and loans (debt funds), as well as safekeeping and control.
  • Maximum degree of client focus: We maintain close cooperation between the capital investment companies and us as depository. For example, for migrations/onboardings, Hauck & Aufhäuser always appoints the key responsible project manager in order to minimize the change effort for the capital investment companies. The same individuals also support capital investment companies outside normal hours of business.
  • Market presence in real assets trading: We regularly hold so-called user group meetings for all real asset clients. These meetings provide an opportunity to share expertise and serve as an internal market place for, and with, our clients.
  • Wide network: Our extensive experience in fund trading has enabled us to establish a broad network of partners in a range of areas – this includes asset managers, master/service capital investment companies, fund administrators, accountants, attorneys, auditors, and assessors.
