Today, data transparency is more vital than ever

Welcome to Citco’s Spring edition of Spotlight. This issue coincides with a sustained period of tumult in the capital markets, and at times like these both managers and investors need to understand their financial exposure by relying more than ever on data transparency.

The current twitchy environment will inevitably cause stakeholders to consider their investment options – and this applies equally to service providers, whose interests are so closely aligned to the continued well-being of the industry.

Consequently, we are delighted to demonstrate our continued investment in the sector by presenting CitcoOne. This next generation portal offers our clients a true self-service tool for sourcing and mining the data and reports we generate as part of our asset servicing responsibilities.

As usual, Spotlight also covers our perspectives on industry trends, such as the emergence of fund governance as a discipline in its own right and the decline of shadow administration for funds of hedge funds, as well as the plethora of rules that continue to flow from our regulators, including FinCEN’s AML rules, UCITS V, MiFID II and the focus on cyber security on both sides of the Atlantic.
