LUXEMBOURG, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ - RBC Dexia Investor Services has been selected by Advent Capital Management LLC. to provide custody, fund administration and shareholder services for a Specialised Investment Fund (SIF) in Luxembourg. Advent Capital Management LLC is a US-based investment management company that specializes in convertible, high yield and equity strategies offered through long only, hedge-fund and NYSE closed-end mutual fund products.

"RBC Dexia's solid reputation and extensive experience in servicing convertible bond funds made the selection for what was best for our company pretty simple," said Bob White CPA, chief financial officer of Advent Capital Management LLC. "Successfully launching a fund is one thing, successfully servicing the fund is integral to the growth and continued success of the fund over the long term. We look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship with RBC Dexia."
