Support for Beechbrook Capital’s latest European fund
RBS International Depositary Services strengthens relationship having been announced as the chosen depositary for Beechbrook Capital’s latest Luxembourg fund.
RBS International Depositary Services has been announced as the chosen depositary for Beechbrook Capital’s latest Luxembourg fund, Beechbrook Private Debt IV Senior SCSp.
The appointment builds on the institutional banking provider’s relationship with Beechbrook Capital, following NatWest Trustee and Depositary Services securing the depositary role for Beechbrook’s UK SME Credit III fund earlier this year.
Beechbrook Capital is a specialist direct lender with investments in businesses across a range of industries in the UK and Europe. Its latest fund, Private Debt IV Senior, focuses on private equity-backed European companies with sales in the range of €10m to €150m and EBITDA of €2m or more.
The appointment as independent depositary will see RBS International Depositary Services enhance its growing reputation in the Luxembourg alternatives market and allow the fund to showcase a best-in-class governance model.
Matthew Hiscock, Director of Alternative Funds at RBS International Depositary Services, commented: “We are delighted to assume the depositary responsibilities for Beechbrook’s Private Debt IV Senior fund. Having laid the foundations to work with Beechbrook as a new depositary partner earlier this year, we have further extended the relationship through our fast-growing Luxembourg offering.
“Our independence remains a key strength in our business credentials, where it allows clients to showcase a best-in-class model, as well as a clear separation from the role of the fund administrator and the critical oversight we provide as depositary.”
