About Global Custodian magazine and the Agent Banks in Major Markets survey

Global Custodian's Agent Banks in Major Markets survey is now in its 33rd year. The survey was conducted from June through September 2022 and it measured performance and satisfaction levels across 11 service areas: Account Management, Asset Safety, Asset Servicing, Cash Management and FX, Client Service, Liquidity Management, Pricing, Regulation and Compliance, Relationship Management, Risk Management, and Technology.

Founded in 1989, the original focus of Global Custodian magazine was on securities processing operations: articles that explore how shares trade and settle and are held. Its editorial scope has since expanded to include fund administration, securities lending and financing, prime brokerage and the infrastructure of the global securities industry (CSDs, ICSDs, payments systems and other industry bodies and initiatives). The editorial content of the magazine is now also supported by industry-standard surveys that address how the performance of custodian banks, fund administrators, prime brokers and tri-party securities financing providers compare with each other and within individual markets.
