HONG KONG: The Citco Group of Companies (Citco) announced on Friday the launch of Citco Institutional Services (CIS), an investment recordkeeping and reporting team born from Citco’s long-term experience handling global, multi-asset portfolios.
Nick Eisenlau has been appointed as the Head of Institutional Services to lead the development of the business.
CIS will work closely with Citco’s core operations teams, leveraging robust asset processing capabilities while offering new services optimised for the unique needs of pensions, endowments, OCIO and family offices. Based on legislative and regulatory pressure, investors heavily focused on fee transparency and performance reporting can access standalone offerings to augment their current processes.
CIS will be the first asset servicer to offer verification of fund fees, across both open-end and closed-end fund charges, including management, incentive and carry structures as well as delivery of standardised reports.
In addition to accounting and portfolio recordkeeping, CIS provides a performance book of record so that investors capture full transparency on their investments, including the incorporation of all historical adjustments.
Performance reporting can be tiered based on client needs, including data services to other applications, reporting dashboards or interactive user analysis tools.
CIS will also offer outsourcing services for alternatives to data capture and quality control to meet the growing complexity of multi-asset portfolios.
“Citco has serviced investor assets for 75 years. Institutional Services is a natural evolution of our core administration capabilities and will broaden our relationship with investors across the globe,” said Roald Smeets, President of Citco.
“We are thrilled to have such an experienced talent as Nick to drive the build-out of this offering.”
Eisenlau most recently served as Citco’s Head of Strategy and Analytics, where he led the development and rollout of CitcoOne, the asset servicing industry’s premier web data analytics and visualization platform, which provides the next generation of user experience to over 400 clients.
