I was uncomfortable about having the administrator as admin and depo-lite provider. It felt like they were "marking their own homework" - by that I mean they rarely queried the manager and any probing felt light. Cantab directors also helped to make the decision. A couple of Cantab fund directors had other clients that use INDOS, and they said that they had been impressed with them too. So we feel we get a more thorough service and for a lower fee. This is a "win-win" for our investors.

We don’t insist on managers appointing an independent depositary, though we do en-courage managers to talk to INDOS in their depositary RFP process, rather than just opting automatically for the administrator affiliated depositary. In our opinion and experience, there is less added value from having an administrator-affiliated depositary than there is from having an independent depositary.
Nick Gaze, Fund Director, Danesmead
The quality of reporting and work was a huge improvement. They look at things in a more comprehensive, detailed manner, using technology effectively. Whereas some other depositaries only carry out reviews for quarterly board meetings, INDOS provide more frequent reviews. The work is performed to a really high standard with a more hands on service.

Alvento Capital partnered with INDOS Financial because they offered an independent service which could necessarily withstand the rigours of a far reaching investor due diligence and, upon examination of their systems and control processes, we could see how their product offering has the potential to go further than that available from administrators.
Lance Peatling, Alvento Capital
We selected INDOS because we were looking for a depositary that would integrate with our existing service providers without the need to change our operating model. INDOS took a proactive and flexible approach throughout the on-boarding process and have provided a thorough and valued level of independent fund oversight since.
