Citco Launches CitcoConnect: a New Stand-Alone Solution for Secure Data Sharing & Digital Investment

Jaa

The Citco Group of Companies (“Citco”), a leading global services provider for the financial services industry, today announced the launch of CitcoConnect, a new digital solution that automates and simplifies the process of managing prospective investors, including an online utility for the placement of initial investments in alternative funds.

The solution features a flexible data room, dedicated to and managed by each Investment Manager, supporting capital raising and reporting as well as digitized initial subscription documentation functionality with embedded analytics.

CitcoConnect is a stand-alone solution that offers managers full control over which materials prospective investors have access to - including how they interact with such documents - through a secure and flexible data room. This data room can house fund offering materials, allows for profile creation and maintenance of each prospective investor, permits relationship tagging and estimated investment amount tracking. Unlike traditional methods of material sharing – for example, email or physical mail, CitcoConnect safeguards data while decreasing the time for investor prospecting and onboarding.

Greg Fenlon, Head of Alternative Investor Services at Citco stated, “Many investors are still operating in a paper-heavy world, filling in lengthy physical documents that have to be faxed, emailed or even mailed back to fund managers and administrators. CitcoConnect challenges the status quo and long-held industry norms, by digitizing much of this process and consequently streamlining and modernizing investors’ experiences of the alternatives space.

“CitcoConnect is a major enhancement to the investor experience and a radical step towards transforming dealing in alternative investment products, taking the industry to a new level of access and investment process facilitation.”

CitcoConnect was born out of a drive for an investor-friendly efficient and streamlined onboarding process for all market participants while paying heed to the importance of cybersecurity as well as the physical fraud threats that exist today. Following a philosophy dubbed “the Citco Way” – a commitment to investing in the right people and giving them the right tools – Citco will continue to drive the development of solutions centered on clients’ needs.

The CitcoConnect platform offers:

  • Capital Raising & Fund Reporting Data Room
    Collaboration tool for Managers and Prospective Investors with one location to share materials relevant to the offering. Ability to securely upload supplemental subscription material (e.g. KYC documents) concurrently while submitting a subscription.
  • Digitized Subscription Forms
    Access to customized and digitized fund subscription documents including all applicable representations, warranties and legal disclaimers available at the investment manager’s discretion.
  • A Subscription Wizard
    A step-by-step walkthrough of the subscription process via a smart digital form that guides investors through each section, ensuring accuracy and a more user-friendly experience.
  • Investment Manager Control
    Power to grant investor access to specific subscription forms and the ability to submit an initial investment form with multilayer authorization and e-signatures that ensure flexibility and security.

The new CitcoConnect product is available immediately. For more information on this and other Citco technology offerings, please visit www.citco.com/our-technology/core-technology/citcoconnect

Elliott Statement on Proposal to Uniper21.3.2019 10:00:00 EETTiedote

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited (“Elliott”) has written to the Management Board of Uniper SE (the “Company” or “Uniper”), to formally request the convocation of an Extraordinary General Meeting (“EGM”) with the express purpose of instructing management to prepare a lawful domination agreement with the Company’s largest shareholder Fortum Oyj (“Fortum”). Elliott believes the thus far ill-defined and ambiguous nature of the relationship between Uniper and Fortum has created an unsatisfactory and unsustainable dynamic, which is detrimental to Uniper. In Elliott’s view, the status quo – operational underperformance and pervasive uncertainty – if sustained, will risk further undermining the Company’s fundamental value. Elliott believes a timely shareholder vote to advance a domination agreement may resolve the prolonged uncertainty at Uniper and clarify the relationship between the Company and Fortum, such that value can be created for the Company and all stakeholders. Elliott believes that F

Key UK SEP Patent Win for TQ Delta20.3.2019 22:03:00 EETTiedote

TQ Delta LLC, a technology development and licensing firm, secured a judgment on March 18 by the High Court of Justice of England and Wales immediately enjoining ZyXEL Communications UK Ltd and its Danish parent company, ZyXEL Communications A/S, from further infringement of TQ Delta's European Patent (UK) 1 453 268. TQ Delta's patent relates to Digital Subscriber Line ("DSL") technology. In an earlier judgment, handed down on March 12, the Court found that the patent was valid and essential to the operation of ADSL2 and VDSL2. In that judgment, the Court held that the ZyXEL defendants have infringed and continue to infringe the patent. The Court also found that a second patent would have also been essential and infringed but was invalid. In its judgment earlier this week, the Court also found that the ZyXEL defendants were "holding out" against taking a licence to TQ Delta's portfolio of patents relating to DSL. It granted an immediate injunction and costs against the ZyXEL defendants
