Citi has introduced the Market Infrastructure Risk Heat Map (“Risk Map”) to provide investor and intermediary clients with comprehensive risk evaluations for each market in Citi’s global network. The Risk Map is the latest solution offered under Citi’s Network 3.0 program, allowing clients to quickly and easily assess market infrastructure risk across multiple attributes.
Through an analysis of over 65 key metrics delivered by Citi’s on-the-ground experts in over 95 countries, the Risk Map delivers a quantitative assessment of market infrastructure risk for account structure and opening, settlements, safekeeping, asset servicing, cash management and taxation.
“In such a risk-focused environment, information sourced from our local market experts remains an extremely valuable resource to help our clients make more informed decisions and react quickly to market events,” said Chandresh Iyer, Managing Director, Citi Investor Services. “With the largest proprietary network and coverage for 98% of the world’s market capitalization, we are uniquely equipped to provide analysis and insight directly to our clients.”
The Risk Map is available as a new feature on Citi’s market information platform, Market Guide. It is also available on Network Direct, Network 3.0’s mobile application.
