Société Générale launches Ucits solution

Société Générale has launched a Ucits Fund Solution for fund managers setting up or redomiciling funds under Ucits regulations.

The group says the service provides an one-stop solution combining the custody, trustee, administration, execution and finance tools required to set up Ucits compliant funds, along with the core services required to operate them.

Société Générale claims the offering is competitively priced compared with using a Ucits platform and offers independent assistance on corporate and operational infrastructure. (article continues below)

In addition, it offers synthetic shorting via Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking’s portfolio swap platform as well as extensive execution solutions from the Corporate & Investment Bank, enabling access to 70 equity cash and derivatives markets.
