MFEX, a fund distribution platform based in Sweden, has agreed to take on the global fund trading platform of Societe Generale Securities Services (SSGS) in Luxembourg.

The two have inked a long-term agreement, under which MFEX will oversee post-trade fund activities operated by Societe Generale Luxembourg.

As part of the deal, all staff associated with the work will move to MFEX.

MFEX co-CEO Olivier Huby said: “This transaction would strengthen MFEX’s presence in Luxembourg and enable MFEX to continue to grow by consolidating its leading position in international funds distribution.

“The assets under administration would exceed €250 billion and MFEX would be able to offer its services in 51 countries and provide access to 72,000 funds.”

The deal is pending regulatory approval.
