In February this year, Global Custodian produced an edition of Securities Review looking ahead to the key events and trends that we thought were likely to unfold over the course of the year. Then COVID 19 hit.
Reading it through today, this edition of Securities Review provides a reminder of how the world of securities services looked before lockdown. Interestingly though, while the pandemic has repainted many of our shorter-term horizons, the issues identified remain very much on the industry agenda.
While it provides a useful view of pre-pandemic expectations, it also reminds us of what topics are likely to re-emerge for consideration as economies and markets stabilise. A pdf copy of Securities Review can be downloaded here.
