SimCorp (OMXC25: SIM) and Citi (NYSE: C), today announced that they have entered into a strategic alliance where Citi Securities Services will integrate post-trade custody data with SimCorp to offer a seamless front-to-back user experience for their mutual clients.

The collaboration brings together SimCorp’s suite of investment management solutions with Citi’s industry-leading proprietary custody network spanning over 60 markets to help clients navigate the challenge of data consolidation and consumption and enhance productivity.

We are thrilled to work more closely with SimCorp in support of our mutual clients,” said Sanjiv Sawhney, Global Head of Custody and Fund Services at Citi. “Our clients continually look to us to improve operational efficiencies and this alliance will allows us to better serve our mutual clients and bring tangible benefits.’

We have enjoyed a strong partnership with Citi in the past, and we are excited to provide our clients further interoperability” said Georg Hetrodt, Chief Product Officer at SimCorp. “Enabling robust and consolidated access to operations and data is essential to our shared clients, and this strengthened collaboration will ensure that our clients have the best possible foundation, helping them to optimize their operating model and drive efficiency.”

Citi Velocity Clarity allows clients to interact with and gain insights from their data, with prioritized workflows and analytics, through one single platform. Citi’s clients benefit from access to faster, up to date data including access to near-real-time post-trade data from across Citi’s broader network.

We are delighted to form this alliance with SimCorp which supports Citi’s strategy of open architecture for data delivery to remove friction for clients” said Fiona Horsewill, Global Head of Data for Citi Securities Services. “The integration of post-trade data into SimCorp Dimension® will allow clients to easily view up to date statuses and investment information though their own lens and gain efficiency by accessing all of their information and workflows through the channel of their choice, bringing the local markets closer to our clients.
