U.S. Bank Global Fund Services Named as the Trust’s Service Provider
Baltimore, MD – September 2020 – Harborside Group, a leading independent investment sales and marketing firm dedicated to serving the distribution needs of the asset management industry since 2004, has announced the creation of an innovative multiple series trust (MST) that includes comprehensive proactive distribution services. The MST, Total Fund Solution, has been formed in collaboration with U.S. Bank Global Fund Services, a large full-service provider to the asset management industry.
“At Harborside Group, we believe that proactive distribution is essential to achieving long-term asset growth,” said Brian Nelson, Founder and President of Harborside. “In today’s crowded marketplace, distribution has become even more important as product placement and adapting to the changing business models of Financial Advisors have become more challenging. With this new MST, managers can focus on what they do best, which is portfolio management.”
“We are excited to provide our services to this innovative, distribution-oriented MST and continue to expand our ‘best-in-class’ services to the asset management industry,” said Joe Neuberger, President of U.S. Bank Global Fund Services. “We believe active distribution plays a critical role in the success of highly regarded managers. We look forward to working with Harborside Group and make available a total solution platform to managers seeking asset growth.”
“Harborside’s new Total Fund Solution MST provides a complete active distribution solution to asset managers who seek to grow AUM primarily through the intermediary channels,” stated Dylan Curley, Global Head of Business Development of U.S. Bank Global Fund Services. “We believe the marketplace for this MST is large and are pleased to team with Harborside on this exciting initiative.”
