8TH SECURITIES SERVICES CONFERENCE

Post-trading opportunities in a sustainable and digital context

MADRID, 24 FEBRUARY 2022
In-person and online meeting

Dear friends,

The year 2021 was marked by an initial scenario of a strong economic upturn, which was subsequently shattered by the rapid spread of the Omicron variant, leading the global economy to a slowdown amid the new COVID threats. Rising inflation, debt, income inequality and public spending are of particular relevance, and monetary policies are entering uncharted territory.

In the field of Securities Services, it has been an excellent year for Cecabank, in which we have strengthened our leadership position as an independent depositary - with assets of more than €213,664 million - and as a custodian bank - with €297,600 million in assets under management - at year-end 2021, which is 59% more than the previous year and positions us as an entity that, in a complex market context, has been able to increase its growth.

We would like to share with all attendees how proud we are to be, for the eighth consecutive year, a leading player in the custody and depositary activity of collective investment institutions and pension funds in Spain.

To ensure the success of this initiative, I would be delighted if you could make time in your busy schedule to participate in our 8th Securities Services Conference which, entitled "Post-trading opportunities in a sustainable and digital context", will be held next Thursday, 24 February 2022, in the Cecabank conference hall, located at calle Caballero de Gracia nº 28 in Madrid, and also in online format, as we did in our latest edition. A conference where banks, fund managers, supervisors and technology companies will engage in a dialogue with the purpose of analysing the impact of technological, digital, regulatory and sustainability changes on the collective investment industry.

In the last edition we had more than 450 attendees from more than 200 institutions, given that we combined the in-person and on-line formats. We hope to increase the number of people attending the meeting, I am convinced that the content will arouse interest.

We hope to see you there.

About Cecabank

Cecabank is the leading custodian bank in Securities Services in Spain and Portugal and a provider of specialised solutions in Payments and Treasury Management. Its differential position is based on its independence, given that the bank does not belong to a retail banking group, and its neutrality, in that it is focused on the custody and depositary business without providing asset management services.

The main premise of Cecabank is its commitment to excellence and quality of service, as acknowledged once again for the fifth consecutive year by Global Banking & Finance Review, having honoured it with the award for Best Custodian Bank 2021 Spain. In addition, one characteristic that identifies Cecabank is its high level of solvency. Its speciality in Securities Services requires these levels to maintain the trust of its customers: management companies and financial institutions.
