SURVEY METHODOLOGY

There was one overall unweighted table, 17 service category tables and additionally three regional tables, one repo respondent table and one securities lending respondent table. The survey was open to all tri-party clients, including securities lending as per last year.

The tri-party survey is now open to all tri-party clients. This year for the first time respondents have the option of ranking tri-party providers for collateral management, in addition to securities lending and repo as in previous years.

Overall table

Tri-party providers require a minimum of 10 responses to qualify in the overall table. You must also qualify in a minimum of two regions (see regional tables for criteria).

Each respondent's scores are averaged to give a final respondent score. If a tri-party provider is rated multiple times by the same respondent firm in the same country the ratings will be averaged and will only count as a single response for the purposes of qualification.
