Outsourcing Custody

Since the founding of the original partnership in 2004, clients had used Adam & Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Royal Bank of Scotland, to provide this custody and administration service. Following a decision by Adam & Company to withdraw from providing third party administration, acting as agent for its clients, GBIM appointed Pershing Securities Limited (Pershing) as custodian from April 2017.
