London, 5 June 2019 – Arbuthnot Latham & Co., Ltd, a UK private bank and wealth manager, has gone live with Euroclear UK & Ireland’s (EUI’s) CREST Investment Fund Service.

Arbuthnot Latham will now benefit from full automation of settlement for its UK investment funds. This automation of fund transaction settlement will allow Arbuthnot Latham to offer end-to-end automation for the settlement of fund units and applicable cash movements.

Arbuthnot Latham has in excess of £1 billion of assets under management and services both high net worth individuals and UK small and medium sized enterprises.

EUI’s automated fund processing solution delivers end-to-end automation. From the placing of a funds order, to the settlement, transfer, reconciliation and corporate action processing of the asset, the service makes a fund held in the UK as easy to administer as any other EUI-eligible instrument.

Martin Williams, Head of Investment Management Operations, Arbuthnot Latham & Co. Ltd commented: “The move to Euroclear UK & Ireland’s investment fund service is another milestone in our drive to reduce operational risk, increase controls and move to automate processes, we are pleased to have worked in partnership with EUI to help achieve these goals.”

Stephan Pouyat, Global Head of Capital Markets and Funds, Euroclear added: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Arbuthnot Latham to our service. The end to end automation of their fund transactions will result in a reduction of risk and costs as well as provide full line of sight of their settlement obligations which will also improve liquidity.”
