Citi Launches Governance Portal for Mutual Funds
Citi has launched its Fund Governance Portal (FGP), providing its mutual fund servicing clients real-time access to data, critical documents and links that are essential to managing a fund’s business. The portal is a free service for Citi’s clients and is available on a secure, password-protected site that is accessible 24/7 from any web-enabled computer.
Citi’s Global Transaction Services (GTS) is providing this service for its mutual fund clients who use its regulatory administration services. The FGP was created in response to clients who sought easier access to fund information and data for their boards of directors, legal personnel, compliance officers, and other associates with fund administration responsibilities.
