Dear Fund managers,
Your platform continues to grow and 615 fund companies from 36 legal domiciles are now available on MFEX’s platform. We now provide access to your funds to institutions in 25 countries with the bulk of it in Europe, but also increasingly outside Europe.
The needs of Distributors and fund companies are continuing to evolve. A more global landscape is emerging in terms of fund purchase and as a result, MFEX is becoming more global. In this context, MFEX continues to perform the required robust level of legal due diligence on all new clients that are buying your funds. The MFEX objective is to provide fund companies with the sufficient compliance and due diligence framework, ensuring a high level of quality and transparency expected by you in this new landscape.
In particular MFEX performs detailed and enhanced due diligence processes stricter than what the normal legislation would impose in terms of AML, KYC as well as other due diligence requirements.
MFEX prides itself being 100% transparent on underlying institutional investors investing in your funds in contrast with some existing market practices. MFEX has been operating in full transparency towards fund distributors and fund companies since 1999 and we are pleased that the industry is now adopting this new and better standard.
During Q1 we signed new trading, custody and rebate collection agreements. Among these are: Banque Degroof Belgium, Banque Degroof Luxembourg, Bank of Singapore, Optimize Investment Partners in Portugal, Deltec Bank and Trust Limited in the Bahamas, Svenska Garanti Produkter in Sweden and Agasti in Norway.

Let´s keep a healthy and fruitful relationship!
… with our recommended seasonal superfood.
Sweet Potatoes – Despite their naturally sweet taste, sweet potatoes have a low glycemic index (GI) which means they can be absorbed and used gradually, preventing the blood sugar from spiking and crashing. Sweet potatoes have been shown to improve blood sugar, even in Type 2 Diabetics. Sweet potatoes are one of the best sources of beta-carotene, and they raise our blood levels of vitamin A, which is a fat soluble vitamin and is best absorbed when eaten with some dietary fat (like organic butter). They are a good carbohydrate source for athletes and also helpful in preventing inflammation, which aids in recovery.
