KAS BANK voted Custodian of the Year

KAS BANK has been voted ‘Custodian of the Year 2012’ at the fifth Annual European Pensions Awards during a ceremony held last Wednesday at the Grosvenor House hotel in London.

The European Pensions Awards have been designed to recognise outstanding achievement in the varied field of European pension provision, honouring providers across Europe that have set the highest professional standards in order to best serve European pension funds in these increasingly challenging times.

KAS BANK was selected from a shortlist of custodians that had proved themselves to be leaders in their field through excellence, innovation and dedication to meeting pension funds’ demands in today’s volatile market. The judging panel, made up of 27 highly regarded industry professionals, presented KAS BANK with the award for ‘Custodian of the Year’. This accolade was awarded based on, amongst other attributes, KAS BANK’s approach to innovation and customer focus.

Representing KAS BANK, Laurens Vis, Managing Director UK, collected the award from Robert Gardner, a member of the judging panel. “To win this Award is both an honour and privilege for our bank”, stated Mr. Vis. “We perceive it as recognition of our continuous determination and commitment towards investors, their asset managers and trading partners in the securities markets of Europe and beyond. It will further motivate us to seek and develop enhanced service improvements and innovative solutions in partnership with our clients and business partners.”
