Mercator Focus: Q2 2023 Foreword

The Mercator® by Citco (Mercator) team are delighted to bring you the latest edition of the 2023 Mercator Focus newsletter, celebrating some key highlights from an action-packed second quarter.

2023 continues to be an exciting time for the legal services industry. Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other tools are developing rapidly with several budding use cases for implementing transformative functionalities. Like many industries, however, we must ensure technology is used effectively and responsibly with efficient frameworks around data input and availability. We look forward to continuing this journey of innovation as we endeavour to revolutionize the practice of Entity Portfolio Management (EPM).

With events booming once again, it was a personal pleasure to attend ACC Europe Conference (Brussels) and the CLOC National Conference (Las Vegas), as well as hold client meetings across Europe and the US. Elsewhere, our team joined other leading minds from across the legal industry at LACCA Live (Sao Paolo), ALM (Chicago), Society of Corporate Governance National Conference (Salt Lake City) and the Annual Investors’ Forum (Vilnius).

It has also been fantastic to roll out live training sessions on Entica™ and collaborate with our clients, receiving invaluable feedback so we can further tailor and evolve our offering. We’re continuing to add further functionalities to Entica™ by enhancing the robustness and reliability of the operational environment via workflow automation. We’re committed to investing in our product and client servicing, ensuring we get the most comprehensive insight to help maintain a healthy governance of entities and mitigate risks.

The Mercator Vilnius office hosted our latest international team session dedicated to furthering our work on how we can provide the best results for our clients. The team had the pleasure of hosting our esteemed business partners from Mexico, Turkey, and the UK to discuss the evolution of EPM and how we can continue to provide exceptional services through innovation and ongoing cooperation.

In this newsletter, you’ll hear from our Mercator experts on key industry topics and get an exclusive preview of the key findings from our upcoming LATAM EPM: Special Report relating to Brazil and Mexico – the regions’ two largest economies.

Finally, we’re thrilled to be expanding our local presence in countries around the globe, to optimize our operating model in line with client requirements. We’re excited to announce the setup of a local operation in Spain. Next on the list is Delaware where, in response to client needs, we’re currently strengthening our local support framework. Stay tuned as we continue to share more developments soon!
