General Distribution

Access to distribution platforms and distributors

Some of our clients have appointed CFS to act as their “General Distributor”. In this respect, we have signed global distribution agreements with Julius Baer Group, Credit Suisse, Swisscanto and UBS in Switzerland, Moventum, Fund Channel and Attrax in Luxembourg, Allianz Global Investors in Germany and MFEX in Sweden. Other agreements are currently negotiated. This additional service includes the contract negotiation with Swiss and European distributors and the calculation of the trailer fees every calendar quarter. 

General Distribution and Distribution Platforms

Obligations of CFS towards the distribution platform and individual distributors:

a) Provide data on all share classes of all funds under agreement with each distribution platform and in the specific format of the relevant platforms. 

b) Provide the distribution platforms with all documents (including KIIDS) issued by the funds, and amended documents, each time they are reissued. 

c) Calculate and pay trailer fees (on an actual /actual basis) to the individual platforms, at the contractually agreed rates and in respect of the specific terms of business. 

CFS assumes the legal work for the funds, the platforms and the individual distributors.
