Citi awarded Value Partners mandate


Citi has been awarded a mandate by Value Partners Group, one of Asia’s largest asset management firms, to provide a complete suite of global custody, fund administration, and fiduciary services for Value Partners’ first Ucits-compliant fund, Value Partners Absolute Greater China Classic Fund.

Launched in June 2012, the new Ucits fund is a sub-fund of Value Partners Ireland Fund, a Dublin-domiciled umbrella company regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.

"Given the current challenging macro environment and the European sovereign debt crisis, investors are keen to explore fund products that have an Asian focus and exposure” says Timothy Tse, chief executive officer of Value Partners. “This Ucits fund provides investors with an opportunity to access the strong growth potential in Greater China at a relatively attractive valuation through a well-recognized, regulated vehicle. We are confident that Citi’s global custody network, coupled with its regional expertise and scalable fund services platform will bring added value to our investors"

Dirk Jones (pictured), global head of securities and fund services client sales management at Citi, says: “We are very pleased to have been selected by Value Partners to provide custody and fund administration services to its first Ucits funds. As investors continually look for new investment opportunities across multiple geographies and emerging markets, Citi’s on-the-ground presence in over 100 markets can help leading fund managers such as Value Partners expand their reach and business. This mandate is testament to the strength of our global network as well as our robust fund services platform. We look forward to leveraging these resources to help Value Partners achieve their growth objectives.”
