Citi Fund Services Wins 2018 NICSA NOVA Award for ‘Operational Excellence’


Citi’s N-Port Solution chosen a winner

Citi’s N-Port service has been chosen by NICSA as a 2018 NOVA award winner in the Operational Excellence category. The NICSA NOVA Awards aim to showcase best-in-class initiatives, technologies, and personalities in asset management today, as well as encourage industry best practice.

Citi’s N-Port service is a solution for clients facing the SEC’s Rule changes affecting the U.S. mutual fund industry in 2018. The SEC’s sweeping reporting modernization and liquidity risk management rules have placed an added operational burden on asset managers. Compliance with the rules requires additional market data, analytics and new reporting infrastructure. Citi partnered with MSCI and Confluence to build the award-winning N-Port service resulting in an efficient and effective model that assists Citi’s clients in meeting these new requirements.

“On behalf of the team, I am honored that NICSA has recognized Citi as the winner in their Operational Excellence category, said Jon Gezotis, Director of Product Management, Citi Fund Services. “We continue to explore new technologies and approaches to actively help our clients meet the rigorous demands of the SEC’s new mutual fund regulations with transparency and control.”

The Awards recognize outstanding organizations and industry professionals that excel in the field of asset management by demonstrating exemplary leadership and innovation. Considerations include creative design and implementation of business initiatives resulting in positive and long-lasting contribution to their respective company and/or the industry as a whole.
