ABOUT GLOBAL CUSTODIAN
GlobalCustodian.com is the website of Global Custodian, the leading magazine covering
the international securities services business. Published five times a year by Strategic Insight, headquartered at 1055 Washington Blvd, Stamford, CT. 06901 USA, Global
Custodian provides analysis and commentary on the latest news and events taking place
in the international securities industry.
The magazine, with a circulation of 20,000 investment professionals around the world, is
defined by high-quality editorial and a series of annual surveys that have become
benchmarks for the industry.
Founded in 1989, the original focus of the magazine was on securities processing
operations: articles that explore how shares trade and settle and are held. Its editorial
scope has since expanded to include fund administration, securities lending and
financing, prime brokerage and the infrastructure of the global securities industry (CSDs,
ICSDs, payments systems and other industry bodies and initiatives). The editorial content
of the magazine is now also supported by industry-standard surveys that address how the
performance of custodian banks, fund administrators, prime brokers and tri-party
securities financing providers compare with each other and within individual markets.
Global Custodian and GlobalCustodian.com are focused distribution vehicles for
advertisers and sponsors wishing to reach and influence key decision-makers in the
custody, fund administration, central securities depositary, hedge fund, prime brokerage,
repo, securities lending, securities financing and collateral management industries.
International securities trading and investment has grown rapidly in recent years, creating
a worldwide community of interest between institutional investors, investment bankers,
broker-dealers and custodian bankers, which Global Custodian alone exists to serve. The
magazine and web site contain an unrivalled combination of quality editorial and original
survey-based data, which affect the day-to-day decisions of industry players.
GlobalCustodian.com aims to publish strictly relevant news stories in each of the areas
covered in the magazine: custody, fund administration, market infrastructure (CSDs, CCPs
and global STP solutions), securities lending and financing, prime brokerage and
securities industry technology and to link them to magazine archive of articles and
GlobalCustodian.com aims to add value to the news, and give leading industry figures a
chance to influence the debate about key issues and developments, by providing regular
commentary by the members of panels of experts in each of the five areas covered by
magazine and the site.
In serving industry players, both Global Custodian magazine and GlobalCustodian.com aspire to the highest standards in editorial integrity, surveys, research, and production values.
