European Depositary Bank SA ("EDB") is part of the Apex Group. 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 breadth of technical experience enables 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 Asset Managers, Family Offices, Institutional Investors and Corporates. 

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 2017 the bank was acquired by the Apex Group and renamed to the European Depositary Bank (EDB) in 2019.

We currently hold fund and securitisation structures with a total value of $260 billion. This is mainly allocated to alternative investments, including real estate, private equity, private debt and renewable energies & infrastructure (as of March 31, 2024).

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.

The Luxembourg based bank maintains branches in Dublin and Malta.
