Citi Grows Nordic Custody Business Through Strategic Referral Arrangement With Nordea
Citi and Nordea have finalized an agreement where Nordea will recommend its existing clients appoint Citi as their new provider of sub-custody services in the region. This follows a decision by Nordea to exit the Nordic sub-custody business.
“Citi is pleased to enter into this strategic referral arrangement with Nordea, a move that affirms our commitment to grow and invest in our sub custody network,” said
“The arrangement with Citi supports our strategic objective with increased Nordic focus. Our clients that transition to Citi can be confident that their short and long term needs are catered for in the best possible way,” said
As a result of this agreement, Citi expects to significantly grow its market share in the Nordics and strengthen its position as a leading international custodian in this region.
Clients that migrate will be able to leverage Citi’s unique European Single Legal Vehicle (SLV) platform through
“Citi is committed to the Nordic region and will work closely with Nordea to ensure a seamless transition,” said Ola Mjorud, Nordic Head of Securities Services at Citi. “We look forward to leveraging our European SLV platform to facilitate streamlined access and deliver best-in-class service to clients who transition to us in the coming months.”
