The German legislature redefined the responsibilities and duties regarding the holding of financial instruments such as alternative investment funds in its 2013 investment code (KAGB). In accordance with the KAGB provisions, an investment management company must employ the services of a depositary, which is – in particular – responsible for control functions in accordance with KAGB.
The depositary bank for the AIFs managed by derigo is Hauck & Aufhäuser Privatbankiers AG.
Depositary’s exemption from liability
In the event that financial instruments safeguarded by a sub-depositary are lost, the depositary can exempt itself from liability if it presents the evidence stipulated by law (pursuant to section 88  and  of the KAGB).
