Our strategy

In a rapidly changing world, with increasing uncertainties, building capital resources is an important part of the social foundation. Increasingly, people are taking this responsibility into their own hands and preparing themselves for the increasing individualisation and digitisation of our society. We are the bank that helps them realise their goals with our knowledge and by developing unique and sustainable administrative and banking services and solutions.

Mission
Enabling prosperity for future generations.

We connect our clients to financial markets, helping them cope with the ever changing landscape by delivering bespoke securities services.

Vision
It is our ambition to be the leading specialist in custody and investment administration services for institutional investors. Our clients are at the centre of our organisation. We are in control, improve continuously, are flexible and decisive. 

We aim to excel in back-office support for all our clients. It is our ambition to be their best administration bank. We offer modern, reliable, safe and client-centric custody; accounting, reporting- and data services. Our strategy is to build this administration bank for investors. We will provide them with the safety of a traditional custodian through technology-driven, data based solutions that enable our clients to remain in control of their fiduciary responsibilities.

This way we help safeguard the future wealth of over 5 million consumers in the Netherlands, UK and Germany.

UK Strategy
We aim to be the governance partner of choice for the UK pensions industry.

We are committed to servicing the pension market and have developed a deep understanding of the challenges that our pension fund clients their and service providers face. At a time of increasing regulatory complexity for pension funds, their trustees and advisers in the UK, schemes need to be confident that their needs are at the core of their securities services provider’s business. 

Our mission in the UK is to help pension scheme trustees to achieve a two-fold goal for their pension scheme members:

“Provide schemes with the ability to maintain a best-in-class governance structure and empower the scheme trustees to make fully informed decisions”

We believe that the way we conduct our day-to-day business with respect to the following enables us to prove that we are clearly different:

Independent and committed - we only work for our clients based on a ‘pure play’ strategy allowing us to remain a neutral party, free from conflicts of interest so that we can help our pension scheme clients to reach their long-term goals.

Partnership - we ensure the highest levels of client service by working in partnership with our pension fund clients and building relationships for the long-term, as well as maintaining an independent and transparent position ensuring every action is taken solely on behalf of the client.

Specialist experts – we are pension people and with our focus on providing securities services and governance solutions to pension schemes we understand the challenges that pension schemes face. With our long-standing experience in this market, we’re on the inside looking at things from our clients’ perspective.

Stay connected, we keep you up-to-date
