Citi’s Securities Lending Cash Collateral Investment Program Now Includes Solutions for Socially Responsible Investors

Citi has added socially responsible investment solutions to its securities lending cash collateral investment program. Securities lending clients will now be able to elect to invest cash collateral under socially responsible investment (SRI) principles that consider environment, social and governance (ESG) factors. According to Eurosif, as of December 31, 2010, over $11 trillion of assets are managed globally in a strategy of socially responsible investing. Without an SRI capability for the investment of cash collateral, firms that manage SRI strategies have found it difficult to participate in securities lending programs.



Industry Recognition
