Credit Market Update: 2020 – a year in review
Michael Peterson I Head of Capital Markets, Citco Capital Solutions I 22 Ferbaruy2021
Last year was a challenging year for credit. 2020 was the year NAV lending finally came into its own, as funds took advantage of these facilities to ‘play offense’ and increase their buying power. We also noticed an uptick in secondary activity in the fourth quarter after having been relatively muted all year. Michael Peterson, Managing Director, and Shiraz Allidina, Director, Citco Capital Solutions Inc, share their review of 2020 and explore how Citco is helping to guide clients through credit markets.
US Beneficial Owner Disclosure Rule
Ernesto Mairhofer I Business Development, Governance Services
On January 1, 2021, the Corporate Transparency Act (“the Act”) was passed into law by incorporation into the National Defense Authorization Act. This marks an important step in bringing the USA into compliance with international transparency standards in the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing. In this article, Izabelle Koeijers, Business Development Manager, Citco Corporate Services Inc., breaks down what is known so far about the new rule, including the beneficial owner definition, disclosure method and accessibility, penalties for compliance failures, and the ban on bearer shares contained within the Act.
FRT is proud to partner with companies that deliver services and technology integrations that expand the value and capabilities of FRT’s comprehensive suite of services that help investors address the growing complexities of the global securities and shareholder class action landscape.
