Global Investor’s 2018 Global Custody survey will soon be inviting all asset managers, asset owners and banks to rate the performance of their global custodians.
Last year Citi and State Street were the star performers in the weighted tables and Pictet and RBC Investor & Treasury Services shared the honours in the unweighted tables.
This year there will be 18 service category tables. Each of these categories is then broken down into sub-categories, on which the global custodians are actually rated by respondents.
Respondents are asked to rate their global custodians from 1 (very poor) to 7 (flawless) in each of the sub-categories. The scores of these sub-categories are combined to create an overall score for that service category.
