The European Depositary Bank SA
Our company was founded in 1973 in Luxembourg as a wholly owned subsidiary of Hamburg based private bank M.M.Warburg & CO (AG & CO) KGaA. As M.M.Warburg & CO Luxembourg S.A., we made it possible for institutional investors to directly access the Luxembourg financial market. This makes us one of the most experienced depositaries for traditional and alternative investment structures in the Grand Duchy. In 2019 the bank was acquired by the Apex Group and renamed to the European Depositary Bank (EDB).
As an independent provider free from institutional influences we can deliver an agile and responsive cross jurisdictional service in an ever-changing regulatory environment.
Our powerful global infrastructure and technical expertise enable us to provide market leading solutions tailored to benefit our clients.
Our vision is to be the leading provider of Banking, Depositary and Custody services to Institutional Investors, Asset Managers, Management and Administration Companies. The Luxembourg based bank will maintain branches in Ireland, UK and Malta.
We currently hold 357 fund and securitization structures with a total volume of € 38.4 billion. Two-thirds of this is allocated to alternative investments, including private equity, real estate, infrastructure and private debt, and one-third to traditional asset classes (as at 30/06/2019).
