In an era defined by technological breakthroughs and dynamic shifts in investment trends, financial institutions are having to navigate new avenues to cater to their clients' evolving needs. As the industry witnesses a migration of assets from higher-cost active mutual funds to more cost-effective passive or active ETFs in Europe, it is important for organisations to offer robust support to clients seeking to make this transition while retaining assets.

Maria Cantillon, EMEA Head of Sales, Citi Securities Services, paid a visit to the IMpower Studios in Monaco, to delve into Citi's innovative use of disruptive technology, its strategies for asset retention in the evolving ETF landscape, and its multifaceted approach to tackling fee pressures and fostering growth opportunities.

Under the spotlight: Maria Cantillon
