RBC Dexia Investor Services, equally owned by RBC and Dexia, has been awarded a mandate by Credit Suisse Investments (Australia) (CSIAL) to provide unit registry services.

RBC Dexia Investor Services provides strategic direction and management oversight to its affiliates, including RBC Dexia Investor Services Bank, a credit institution licensed in Luxembourg by the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier and the Ministry of Finance.

Simon Beavis, responsible manager of CSIAL, said: “Ultimately a unit registry provider needs to provide an enhanced service offering to our clients and, following a competitive selection process, RBC Dexia’s registry solution was selected as best meeting these requirements. We are confident that RBC Dexia’s ongoing commitment to us will support us in providing an effective service to clients – it’s what makes this relationship so successful.”

David Travers, MD of RBC Dexia Investor Services in Australia, said: “This mandate builds on the strength of the existing global relationship we have with Credit Suisse. We look forward to a future of supporting the holistic solutions-based approach with the market leading registry system.”
