Investment restrictions

Using established systems, we perform investment compliance monitoring ourselves, in order to be able to respond immediately to any investment limit infringements. In contrast to the risk control system, which is first and foremost about “measuring risks”, investment compliance monitoring aims to examine the absolute, statutory and contractual (e.g. on the basis of the prospectus) investment limits.

Daily monitoring of the fund valuation

The proper accounting of all transactions will be monitored by us on a daily basis. In so doing, the following points will be examined separately:

  • Traded purchases/sales of fund assets
  • Receivables
  • Liabilities
  • Yield credit
  • Capital measures
  • Accounts at the expense of the fund’s assets
  • Plausibility of price sources for valuation

For this, cash flows from financial transactions and operational business are recorded in a rolling planning procedure.

Compliance with legal standards and regulatory requirements will be taken over by our compliance function and includes, inter alia, the following services:

  • Advice on conflicts of interest
  • Advice on KYC (Know Your Customer) and AML (Anti-Money Laundering)
  • Reporting to local regulatory authorities in accordance with the investment policy
  • Examination of the marketing material and the disclaimer
  • Monitoring of services outsourced to business partners

If desired, we will also support your sales team. We offer the following services in this context:
