The Yearbook – with over 220 pages – describes services offered by global custodians in the worldwide securities markets and also, explores those issues and trends of importance to both investor and service provider in the Emerging Markets.

In the Profiles section of the Yearbook, services offered by each global custodian in the worldwide securities markets are described in detail. A new service category for 2001, “Outsourcing,” is catching on with funds, plan sponsors, and investment managers. Other service categories included are Client Workstation Technology, Cash Management, Derivatives, Foreign Exchange, Fund Accounting, Network Management, Offshore Funds, Portfolio Management and Performance Measurement, Proxy Services, International Securities Lending, Tax Reclaims, Trade Execution and more.

A Network Management Chart for each global custodian identifies the network by country, including current and planned network additions, proprietary/non-proprietary, subcustodians and SEC 17f(5) qualified status.

Survey topics for 2001:

The section is packed with charts and tables on current and past experiences by the world’s largest players.

* This year promises to bring the greatest roll-out of new, Internet-based products by global custodians.

The advent of e-commerce strategies deployed at the major banks may be the future platform for delivery of global custody services. A new, Internet-driven movement portends to rattle the competitive landscape in the not too distant future. The IT investment
