Hong Kong – Citi has been awarded the "Best in Corporate Trust" award in Asia by The Asset magazine's 2019 Triple-A Asset Servicing, Investor and Fund Management Awards.
The award, decided by The Asset's editorial team, assesses and recognizes both sell-side service providers and buy-side institutions to deliver a complete account of Asia's highly dynamic asset servicing industry.
Last year was a record year for Citi's Agency and Trust (A&T) business in Asia, which delivered growth across key markets such as China, Korea, India and across Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
The team won landmark transactions, including the Tata Consultancy Services Buyback—the largest buyback in Indian capital's market history. Other public client work included a 17-year BRI project finance deal that helped finance the First Dhaka Elevated Expressway.
Citi's A&T business brings market-leading solutions and global connectivity to support clients in accessing global capital markets. Citi A&T provides clients with solutions, including acting as paying agent, note trustee, security trustee and escrow agent roles across a range of different financings such as bonds, loan, securitization, project finance, complex acquisitions and restructuring transactions. These roles form a critical part of the post-closing administration of any financing transaction.
"This is the ninth time that we have won this award in the past 10 years, which underlines our commitment and consistency in this business. It is particularly pleasing that Citi has now received the Best in Corporate Trust award for the past four years in succession. This is reflective of strong client relationships, Citi's global network and commitment to deliver best in class execution for clients across a wide range of products," said Adrian Nye, APAC Head of Issuer Services at Citi.
