This transaction is part of BNP Paribas’ 10-year strategic build-out of its Securities Services business in the US, and provides the bank with a proven US mutual fund administration and accounting platform.
More than 100 Janus Henderson employees, based in Denver, Colorado, have transitioned to BNP Paribas. The bank is committed to growing its presence in Denver, where its mutual fund administration hub will now be located. Other Securities Services operational hubs in the US include King of Prussia, Pennsylvania for hedge fund administration and Jersey City, New Jersey for custody and clearing.
As part of the transaction, BNP Paribas becomes the fund services provider for Janus Henderson’s US regulated mutual funds, representing $138 billion in assets.
“We have a long-standing relationship with Janus Henderson and are pleased to further this partnership. We are also delighted to welcome Janus Henderson’s staff of fund servicing professionals, whose combined expertise will enable us to deliver a seamless transition for Janus Henderson and its clients. As we continue to build out our US business, we will be able to offer the market an integrated middle-to-back office platform, offering ’40 Act fund accounting, fund administration and custody.”
Claudine Gallagher, Head of the Americas for BNP Paribas Securities Services
