Our Story

Since its inception in 2012, INDOS Financial has grown organically, developing solutions recognised as industry-leading. As of January 2019, client assets under depositary oversight have grown past $28 billion and a further $15bn which are MLRO service clients.

There are many reasons that make INDOS such an attractive proposition to potential clients, here are just some of them.

  • INDOS is independent. We firmly believe that depositary services are more effective when handled by an autonomous provider, rather than one affiliated to a fund administrator. This belief is growing within the fund management community. In the last three years alone, over 40% of INDOS’ depositary assets, representing over $12bn, have been transferred from other service providers.
  • INDOS’ clients enjoy a tailored fee structure where, unlike the fixed rates charged by many other providers of depositary services, rates decline as fund managers’ assets grow.
  • The INDOS team, based in our London, Fareham and Ireland offices, bring with them a wealth of experience operating in the alternative funds arena. Working closely with our clients’ existing fund administrators, prime brokers and custodians, they offer exceptional standards of service – flexible, proactive and transparent; this has been instrumental in our ability to build long-term and successful client relationships.
