From 03 August 2012 Nordea Bank offers its customers units in mutual funds (MF) managed by Deutsche UFG Capital Management (UFG INVEST ZAO).
Nordea Bank customers will be able to purchase MF units in any office of the Bank with the managing company’s service point in Moscow, Saint Petersburg and other towns of Russia, due to the signed bilateral agreement.
Deutsche UFG Capital Management is the first managing company to offer its investment solutions through Nordea Bank.
Andrey Maltsev, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of OJSC Nordea Bank: “We are launching an investment product line with a view to saving and increasing our individual customers’ funds. This is a new business area for us and we are sure that our products will be in demand. We are planning to develop investment banking based on the Nordea Group’s experience in the Nordic countries and the Baltic region where such customer services are being successfully implemented. Sales of MF units and cooperation with Deutsche UFG Capital Management is the first step in developing the investment product line.”
Galina Romanyuk, Retail Director at Deutsche UFG Capital Management: “We are happy to see the growing interest on part of retail banks to development of investment banking. It is obvious that in the current economic environment the existing ‘classic’ banking products hardly cover customer needs for saving and increasing funds, therefore most active banks are adopting an investment product promotional strategy. We are pleased to realise that Deutsche UFG Capital Management was the first managing company to sign an agreement with Nordea Bank on sale, exchange and redemption of MF units.”
