U.S. Bancorp USB has opened doors of its Luxembourg office, through which it will offer fund accounting and administration, domiciliation, depositary and custody-related services for Luxembourg-domiciled funds.

The office will be under the leadership of Didier Delvaux, who has more than 25 years of fund administration and custody experience. He joined the company last year as Luxembourg country head.

U.S. Bank Global Fund Services offers alternative investments, mutual funds and exchange-traded products. This unit, along with U.S. Bank’s corporate trust and custody teams, makes up the Investment Services division, which in total, holds more than $7.7 trillion in assets under custody and administration.

The company seeks to satisfy clients by providing customizable service offerings, state-of-the-art digital tools and exemplary client service.

"Clients are looking for expertise they can trust; they want a provider with a deep understanding of the industry, investments and their goals. Given the complexity and volatility of the current regulatory and market environment, it’s essential for clients to find a provider who is intimately familiar with local regulatory nuances.” said Delvaux.

He also added, "Our initial focus will be on private equity and private debt funds, where our capabilities are unparalleled in the market. We are making a long-term commitment to the Luxembourg market, as demonstrated by our brand-new office in the Kirchberg financial center."
