SEPTEMBER 2014 N O. 39


JOE SALIBA, Deputy CEO, CACEIS When our clients dial back their activity levels over the summer, it provides CACEIS with an ideal opportunity to review strategic goals and fine tune our approach to achieving our growth targets as well as our clients’business development objectives. With summer now firmly behind us, we are closely focused on developing four key areas, and have implemented targeted investment campaigns to promote these products, all four of which are designed to meet the ongoing market needs of both existing clients and prospects. Our‘Prime Fund Solutions’ clearing service has significantly strengthened our group’s offer in electronic execution and listed derivatives clearing, enabling us to provide effective support to clients worldwide. Emir regulations have also played a role in driving product innovation in our OTC derivative clearing offer and collateral management from‘execution to custody’, and today we are in a strong position to add real value to our clients’businesses in these areas. Furthermore, to meet specialised needs of the growing private equity & real estate sector, CACEIS’ dedicated PERES division has been significantly enhanced to provide some of the most advanced IT platforms designed to enable PERES asset managers to better keep track of risks and performance. And finally, our investments also cover major upgrades to our securities lending systems, which have greatly improved our ability to provide automated front-to-back-office integration, increasing the efficiency and accuracy of data transfers for reporting purposes for clients using the program. In conjunction with these key product development initiatives, we have also made significant investments into our ability to service clients from their local markets. This is especially the case in Italy, where notwithstanding our early 2014 launch, we are today able to offer the full range of CACEIS’ products and services to clients operating in the Italian market. The speed with which we have brought the comprehensive servicing offer to the market clearly demonstrates our full commitment to supporting the needs and the business development objectives of clients in Italy’s fund industry

A GLOBAL APPROACH IN LINE WITH CLIENTS’ NEEDS CACEIS’s integrated model in- cludes execution and clearing for cash equities, futures and options, collateral management, custody, fund administration services and reporting. CACEIS enables asset managers to modernise their workflow in ensur- ing full STP, to improve their ac- cess to liquidity, to rationalise their trading costs, to reduce their opera- tional risks. Such services permit our clients to focus on their core activity which is to make invest- ment decisions. Our comprehensive post-trade processing and reporting service, offers a real streamlining of

flows and operations, and thus im- portant savings in time and energy usually spent in poor added value tasks. This setup provides a frame- work in full compliance with MiFID Directives and EMIR regulations. Following the shifting regulatory environment, CACEIS is develop- ing OTC Clearing capabilities by merging these new developments within its core clearing platform dedicated to listed derivatives. In the coming years, the border be- tween OTC and listed derivatives will become increasingly blurred and collateral management is be- coming a key component of the global offer. continued on page 6
