Custody Solutions

Safeguard assets with increased transparency.

As a member of the DTCC, Federal Reserve and Euroclear, Bank of America Merrill Lynch delivers accurate, timely post-trade processing and asset servicing for fund managers, insurers, corporations and financial institutions worldwide.

Our end-to-end custody platform can help you improve operational efficiency in a controlled environment and provide you with timely, integrated reporting. Fund trustee clients in Ireland experience extra layers of protection and oversight, since trust services are delivered independently from fund administration.
