  • 3. What due diligence is conducted on the fund’s service providers?

    GAM appoints market leading service providers following initial due diligence and assessment of
    suitability, and reviews these relationships at periodic service review meetings. It invariably deals with
    entities qualified for the purpose engaged and whose activities have recognised regulatory oversight
    within their jurisdiction of operation.

  • 4. Has the auditor ever issued qualified financial statements for the fund?

    The funds’ auditor has never issued a qualified opinion on the financial statements of the fund.

  • 5. If any of the service providers has changed within the past three years, please explain why.

    GAM has long standing relationships with many of its external service providers; however the terms of
    those relationships are constantly under review as GAM seeks the most competitive terms. In particular,
    GAM has appointed State Street as the custodian and delegate administrator to the majority of its funds
    effective 7 March 2016.
    Why State Street?
    State Street is one of the leading global custodians and fund administrators with assets under custody
    and administration of USD 32 trillion, as at 31 December 2018. State Street is a strategically focused
    third-party fund administrator and custodian, is globally present, financially solid and has a large footprint
    in Europe.

    GAM already has a well-established relationship with State Street since 2013 as Custodian and
    Administrator for most Julius Baer branded funds and part of our Private Label Funds. State Street is one
    of the leading global custodians and demonstrates a high level of service excellence in managing
    migration projects, the development of IT functionality and interfaces, and their operational delivery.
    Furthermore, concentrating assets with one core provider of fund administration and custody services is
    adding considerable economies of scale to GAM’s outsourcing model, with a strong focus on risk
    management and compliance.
    The implementation of the new operating model began in the second half of 2015. GAM has successfully
    completed the transfer of the back office function to State Street, along with the middle office servicing for
    our GAM branded funds. Please refer to www.gam.com for further details.
