Welcome to the IFDS group of companies
The Global Transfer Agency
Since 1973 we have been leading the market with transfer agency solutions. It all started in 1973
when DST Systems and State Street came together and created their first joint venture, Boston
Financial, then in 1995 the seeds were sown for the creation of what would become International
Financial, the joint venture brand for the major domestic non-US markets. With State Street directly
providing a range of solutions to the European, Asian and Pacific institutional markets.
Today we collectively service over 45 million shareholder accounts for over 700 clients with over
5,500 experienced staff. With operational centres across the key continents we can
support clients transfer agency needs either via the joint venture companies or directly with State Street.
As organisations look to leverage their core competencies either in asset management or distribution
they can be sure that entrusting the technology or servicing requirements to us means that their
business is safe in the best of hands. With a range of flexible servicing solutions from ASP to a
complete business process outsourcing arrangement clients can be certain in the understanding that
each solution is tailored to fit with their individual requirements.
When it comes to transfer agency there is only one solution, the smart solution. Welcome to our
world of solutions.
