Citi Launches Direct Notifications for Structured Finance Transactions with Bloomberg
Citi has launched a communication and notification service for structured finance issuers to communicate key actions directly to investors in real-time via the Bloomberg Professional service.
As notification agent for issuers, Citi will deliver automated amendments, waivers and consents and other types of notices directly to investors via CF<GO>, the corporate filing platform available to Bloomberg Professional’s subscribers – a software platform that provides real-time and historical data, news and analytics. Investors will be able to access a link to Citi’s secure investor reporting website to view notices online in real-time.
Citi commented that investors are increasingly challenged to efficiently monitor notices on numerous tranches of structured finance issues which can directly impact pricing and liquidity. Until now, investors have relied on indirect notification of actions via third parties. The investor direct notification service alerts them so they do not miss important notifications that could impact deal monitoring.
“We are pleased to work with Bloomberg to launch Citi’s latest extension of our trust and administration services for structured finance issuers and investors,” said Paul Burke, North America head of sales, agency and trust services, Citi. “We have a deep understanding of the needs of the participants in the structured finance markets, and we are committed to delivering leading solutions that help increase transparency and liquidity.”
