Vontobel Asset Management, a Swiss fund manager, has appointed Kneip to carry out regulatory filing and production of Key Investor Information Documents (KIIDs).
Vontobel, which had CHF 163 billion (€134 billion) of assets under management at December 31, has appointed KNEIP, based in Luxembourg, for services across its Swiss and Luxembourg fund ranges.
The appointment also includes fund data management and financial reporting.
Vontobel is seeking to streamline its data aggregation process and efficiencies in generation and submissions of finalised documents to relevant authorities, using relevant languages and formats.
Bernhard Schneider, head of international product management at Vontobel Asset Management, say: “The decision to appoint a provider for our KIID, fund management and reporting functions is part of a wider ambition to continuously improve our operational efficiency and support growth in an international environment, and to ensure we are compliant with industry best practices.”
