“We recognize the significant role that consultants play in our industry,” said Bob Wallace, North America head of securities and fund services, Citi. “Increasingly, our investor clients are turning to consultancy and advisory firms–in accounting, legal, compliance, research, and the like–as a means to gain a competitive advantage and make informed business decisions. Consultants are influential and valuable resources in helping to shape our clients’ business strategies, and therefore they are essential to us as well.”
