CITI® TREASURY ANALYTICS SERVICE ASSISTS CLIENTS IN MEETING NEW REGULATORY REPORTING REQUIREMENTS OF FAS 115-2
New York - August 10, 2009 – Citi today announced that it has enhanced its custody and investor services capabilities with new online reporting functionality to help clients address the regulatory reporting requirements of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Statement 115-2 (FAS 115-2).
These new enhancements increase transparency and allow clients to manage their portfolio holdings more efficiently than before. The new functionality addresses mark-to-market accounting for securities and generates regulatory disclosures with greater detail and frequency than previously required. As a part of this upgrade, Treasury Analytics gives each client the flexibility to write down securities per their specific requirements while providing greater control in how these impairments are recognized. It also integrates FAS 115-2 requirements with daily and period-end investment reporting in an automated and auditable process.
Treasury Analytics is an investment analytics reporting tool that offers integrated reporting on risk, compliance, accounting, and performance measures across a portfolio of investments. It provides portfolio managers and treasurers with timely, accurate data critical to manage their assets, fulfill their reporting requirements and address their fiduciary responsibilities. Its daily, web-based reports enable executive, compliance/audit and board reporting at a moment's notice - critical features in the rapidly-changing financial markets.
Treasury Analytics is available through Citi's web portal, CitiDirect® for Securities, and can be coupled with other services for investor and corporate clients.
"This enhancement is another example of Citi providing our clients with the tools they need to keep up with new regulations both efficiently and easily," said Craig Dudsak, Global Custody North America Region Head, Citi.
