Headstrong And TowerGroup Survey on Benchmarking Collateral Management Process - Across Asset Classes

11 May 2011

In 2011, the collateral management function across asset classes is one of the key focus areas from an industry perspective. To support this industry initiative we at Headstrong, a leading provider of consulting and technology solutions for the financial services sector, teamed up with TowerGroup, a leading independent analyst firm, for an industry wide benchmarking study and report on collateral management across asset classes.

This survey is currently open to the public and aims to benchmark the existing collateral management process across asset classes and offer insight into identifying the industry-wide requirements for a collateral management process. The survey will cover the following asset classes- OTC Derivatives, Repurchase Agreements, Securities Lending and Borrowing and Institutional Listed F&O.

As a thank you for your participation, all participants will receive:

• An invitation to be our guests at the 2011 Travelers Championship PGA TOUR event at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, CT the weekend of June 22nd 2011.

• A complimentary copy of the survey report, estimated value at $10,000.

• An invitation to an industry event to be held in New York City to celebrate the launch of the report findings. We will update you with the details of the event as soon as the dates and venue are finalized.

Headstrong will receive only unattributed data from TowerGroup for analysis. Participation will be solicited from buy side, sell side, and custodial firms worldwide. Headstrong and TowerGroup will analyze the survey results and author a comprehensive written report. As an industry leader, Headstrong plans to conduct this survey annually in an effort to provide industry benchmarking in the collateral management process.
