Exclusive interview with Philippe Bens, Head of Regional Coverage at CACEIS Suisse

Philippe Bens has over 25 years experience in asset servicing. In 1994 he took over the management of depositary and custodian services at Banque Indosuez, in Luxembourg, before becoming Senior Project Manager for Fastnet Luxembourg, in charge of customer communications. In 2002, he was made business development director for Switzerland, Benelux, Scandinavia and the Middle East. He moved to Nyon in 2008 to take over the management of CACEIS Suisse, which was launched in 2006. With the creation of the CACEIS Bank Switzerland Branch in 2015, the Swiss arm of the group now offers a package of services to answer all the needs of its existing and prospective clients. Since then, Philippe has been at the head of all the sales teams in Switzerland and presided over the development of the branch.

We asked him a few questions.

What makes CACEIS unique in its sector ? CACEIS Suisse is the only player on the Swiss market to offer a complete "one-stop shop" type of fund management and local and global custodian and depositary bank services.
We also offer more specific services, such as order execution on the main financial markets and the administration and management of third-party funds. Our onshore solutions cover the entire post-trade environment by intervening upstream in the value chain.
What’s more, we are proud that CACEIS Suisse counts many leading players in asset management among its clients, such as management companies, pension funds, insurance companies and private banks.

What added value will the acquisition of KAS BANK bring to CACEIS Suisse ? The recent acquisition of KAS BANK provides our clients with the expertise and resources of a well-established player. KAS BANK is a recognised name, specialising in pension funds in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Germany.

CACEIS is developing its services for pension funds. What benefits does it provide ? Pension funds constitute a major area of development for our company. We provide transaction processing, portfolio valuation and daily reporting on the valuation of all pension fund assets and liabilities.
Our turnkey asset administration services cover the full range of pension fund/middle office reporting services, including financial accounting, annual reports, regulatory and tax reporting, and reporting of performance, risks and ESG. This enables our clients to fully concentrate on their investment strategies. They benefit from a single point of contact and a single point of entry, and have a consolidated view of all portfolios, whether managed internally or externally.
