Northern Trust Asset Management Provides Tax-Transparent Fund Range for Danish Institutional Investors

Del

Institutional investors in Denmark now have access to the unique tax-transparent benefits of Northern Trust Asset Management’s Common Contractual Fund (CCF) solutions, following a ruling by the Danish National Tax Board.

The tax-transparency of Northern Trust Asset Management’s CCF range is complemented by sustainability and the cost efficiency of a passive approach to investing, creating a compelling investment solution.

Confirmation of tax-transparency by local country tax authorities enables investors to obtain the same withholding tax rates as if they had invested directly in equities, with the added features of investing via a pooled fund – including tighter governance, better risk management, economies of scale and engagement.

“The ruling from the Danish National Tax Board will now allow institutional investors to take full advantage of the dual taxation treaties – and we believe this translates to greater return potential and opportunities to achieve enhanced performance,” said Mamadou-Abou Sarr, director of product development and sustainable investing at Northern Trust Asset Management. “According to our research, based on data as of 31 October 2017, by investing in a CCF, a Danish pension fund investing in a world equity index fund could achieve an uplift of 20 to 50 basis points, depending on the strategy, compared to investing in a non-tax-transparent vehicle.”

Northern Trust Asset Management’s CCF solutions offer three key benefits for Danish investors:

  • Tax-transparency: The CCF is a tax transparent structure which allows for the withholding tax rate of the investor, rather than the fund, to be applied.
  • Cost-efficiency: The Northern Trust Asset Management range of CCFs delivers passive exposure to a range of custom and standard indices as well as factor based strategies.
  • Sustainability: Many of the CCF funds incorporate core environmental, social and governance themes using exclusionary and best-in-class approaches.

“Institutional investors such as pension funds and insurance companies continue to grapple with regulatory change and face increasing demands to reduce bottom-line costs and improve top-line performance,” said Sarr. “Choosing the right investment vehicle is one way to achieve this and we are pleased to offer our range of tax-efficient CCFs to Danish investors.”

The firm’s CCF solutions are among a range of innovative product structures developed for the unique needs of today’s European investors. As of 31 December 2017, Northern Trust Asset Management had almost US$12 billion in assets under management in its comprehensive range of Irish and Dutch domiciled fund, which include both tax-transparent and non-tax transparent options for Danish investors.
