Kevin O’Neill, managing director, asset managers for North America at RBC Investor & Treasury Services, said: “When deciding on a service provider for the launch their first UCITS fund, Chiron Investment Management recognised our capabilities and in-depth market knowledge that has been built over decades supporting US fund managers.”
