Citi to Acquire ING's Custody and Securities Services Business in Central and Eastern Europe with €110 Billion in Assets Under Custody
 

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE / ME NewsWire)-- Citi Securities and Fund Services has entered in to a definitive agreement to acquire ING's custody and securities services business in seven Central and Eastern European (“CEE”) markets currently representing €110 billion in assets under custody. ING is a premier provider of custody services in CEE, offering services to many of the world's largest financial institutions.

The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approval and clearances, includes ING's local custody and securities services businesses in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Russia, Slovakia and Ukraine. Once implemented, the addition of Bulgaria will extend Citi's custody network coverage to over 95 markets and its proprietary custody network will be expanded to 62 markets.

The acquisition enables Citi to offer investors, intermediaries and issuers comprehensive securities services in the region through a strengthened country presence combined with access to Citi's global banking network. The transaction will also provide clients with further processing efficiencies and enable consistency of service across multiple markets. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Subject to standard closing conditions and regulatory approvals, Citi and ING expect this transaction to close in the first quarter 2014.

“With this acquisition, Citi has further strengthened its franchise in six important markets and has added Bulgaria to its proprietary network. We are now even better positioned to serve local and global investors, intermediaries and issuers with the best access, insight and expertise in the region,” said SanjivSawhney, EMEA Head of Securities and Fund Services, Citi. “We look forward to delivering the same level of exceptional service that ING has given its clients in the CEE region.”

“ING was one of the first agents to identify the region's rich opportunities, rapidly establishing an office network that provided unparalleled geographic coverage and local expertise,” said NeerajSahai, Head of Securities and Fund Services, Citi. “This acquisition demonstrates our commitment to continually enhance our securities and fund services capabilities and extending our leadership position in emerging markets.”

Through its Securities and Fund Services business, Citi's industry-focused experts provide institutional issuers, intermediaries and investors worldwide with tailored solutions delivered through proven global platforms that feature modular, open architecture. With $13.5 trillion of assets under custody and the industry's largest proprietary network, clients can leverage Citi's local market expertise and global reach to extract value across the entire investment value chain.
