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, 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 maintains branches in Ireland and Malta.
We currently hold fund and securitisation structures with a total volume of €103.2 billion. This is mainly allocated to alternative investments, including real estate, private equity, liquid assets, renewable energies & infrastructure and private debt (as at December 31, 2020).
For the avoidance of doubt we do not deal with retail clients. We neither offer any securities (bonds, shares, notes etc) nor do we act on behalf of any other financial institution to offer such securities to any clients.
