RBC Investor & Treasury Services will provide custody, fund administration, analytics, treasury, and other UCITS fund services from its operations in Dublin.

Enrico Gaglioti, co-founder and CEO of Chiron Investment Management, said: “RBC’s understanding of the UCITS sector, strong track record of supporting fund launches by US boutique asset managers, client-centric approach and robust technology solutions make them strong partners in supporting our continued growth.”

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.”

“Ireland remains an attractive and competitive international centre for globally distributed investment funds. We look forward to partnering with organisations like Chiron as they seek growth opportunities in new markets
