Citco Integrates S3 Partners’ BLACKLIGHT Technology

Share

The Citco Group of Companies, (“Citco”), a leading provider of asset servicing solutions to the global alternative investment industry, today announced a product partnership with S3 Partners, a leading fintech innovator and data analytics firm, and the integration of its BLACKLIGHT Treasury Management solution.

S3 Partners’ real-time, independent financing data prices opaque borrow and loan markets and redefines short interest, crowding and previously stale indicators for which the industry has had no centralized source. BLACKLIGHT leverages these analytics along with leading technology for better outcomes in investment process, risk management, and counterparty relationships.

The agreement between Citco and S3 allows Citco clients to get the benefit of BLACKLIGHT’s Financing Trade Cost Analytics (FinTCA) tools to maximize trade, margin and collateral exposures and efficiencies. The platform will be rolled out via Citco’s Æxeo Treasury platform.

“Our focus at Citco has always been to provide our clients with the best technologies and services to make their lives easier. This is why we have decided to integrate S3’s market-standard BLACKLIGHT suite of data and technology,” said Albert Bauer, Managing Director at Citco Fund Services (USA) Inc. “Integrating BLACKLIGHT into our existing Citco framework enables us to provide S3’s efficient insights to best execution, cost of margin and working capital and to monitor liquidity alongside our new Æxeo Treasury platform. Our clients have asked for these nuanced analytics which we can now offer via BLACKLIGHT with single-sign-on access and virtually no operational friction.”

“We are thrilled that Citco has chosen to partner with us and recognizes the value of our broker-neutral solutions,” said Bob Sloan, Founder of S3 Partners. “The Citco-S3 alliance, along with our distribution via Bloomberg, Nasdaq and Reuters, expands the reach of our technology and data to every player type and client segment.”
