Raising Sovereign Institution Efficiency in the Mena Region

conversations about the issues facing our industry, as creating new business op- portunities and finding new efficiencies require a collaborative effort. Events like Sibos, which bring together so many in- fluential players from the industry, are key to this. The main topics of this year’s Sibos event are of great importance to us as a global asset servicing company, and have a large impact on the many types of client we ser- vice. One such client is sovereign institu- tions, which are faced with a number of complex issues including complying with incoming regulations, low interest rates and carrying out investment strategies in markets characterised by high levels of uncertainty. At CACEIS, we understand the needs of sovereign institutions, and have serviced several such institutions for many years. We have a business development team dedicated to the MENA region which is available during the conference to discuss the advantages for sovereign institutions of working with an experienced global asset

servicing company, backed by a leading fi- nancial institution like Crédit Agricole. CACEIS’s service offering is designed to cover the needs of such institutions, in terms of asset security and operational ef- ficiency. From custody in over 80 markets to liquidity management services includ- ing flexible securities lending programs, OTC derivatives services, investment re- striction monitoring, and performance and risk analysis reporting, CACEIS can provide effective support to sovereign in- stitutions as well as many other types of client. Aside from involvement in the dis- cussions during the Sibos conference, CACEIS is of course present in the exhibi- tors area, and there is a strong delegation of CACEIS professionals, including my- self, who will be on hand at the stand for the duration of the event. We would be more than happy to discuss the industry, your business, and the solutions CACEIS offers for increasing operational efficien- cy, adding value, and controlling risks, so please pass by our booth at any time ■
