KAS BANK named Custodian of the Year at pensions awards

KAS BANK was named “Custodian of the Year” at the annual European Pensions Awards 2016, held in London recently.

Hosted by European Pensions Magazine and now in their ninth year, the awards have been designed to recognise outstanding achievement in the varied fields of European pension provision, honouring the investment firms, consultancies and pension providers across Europe that have set the professional standards in order to best serve European pension funds in these increasingly challenging times.

An independent panel of expert judges recognised KAS BANK as best-in-class among a strong group of shortlisted firms, including BNP Paribas Securities Services, Northern Trust, Societé Generale and State Street.
