MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 13, 2012-- U.S. Bancorp Fund Services, LLC (“USBFS”), a subsidiary of U.S. Bancorp (NYSE:USB), announced it has agreed to acquire AIS Fund Administration (“AIS”), a leading provider of fund administration and related services to alternative investment managers.

The transaction adds approximately $25 billion in hedge fund assets under administration to U.S. Bancorp Fund Services’ existing alternative investments business, along with 176 employees in New Jersey, the United Kingdom and the Cayman Islands.

Terrance Dolan, vice chairman, U.S. Bank Wealth Management & Securities Services, said, “This acquisition is another key step in U.S. Bank’s strategic growth of our securities services business. This enables us to expand our fund servicing capabilities and complements our focus on corporate trust services.”

“This is an important acquisition for U.S. Bancorp Fund Services as it demonstrates our long term commitment to becoming an alternative investment services leader,” said Joe Redwine, president, U.S. Bancorp Fund Services. “We are pleased that the AIS organization will become part of our team and continue the tradition of innovation and superior service that both organizations are known for in the industry.”
