Award Descriptions

Open to a team providing repo services in the geographical region specified. Entries should summarize main features of the service and how this delivers value to its clients. Which elements deliver outperformance? You may wish to comment on trading strategy, use of service partners, efficient use of inventory and balance sheet, evolution of client base, ability to negotiate testing market conditions and regulatory change.

A partnership between two or more organizations that has delivered service innovation, performance improvement and/or higher standards of risk management and operational efficiency to the securities finance industry.

This award recognizes a group or initiative that demonstrates commitment to sustainable securities finance transactions. It will promote the long-term improvement of the securities finance industry and is not a temporary or occasional campaign. The submission should provide examples of initiatives that have had a positive impact on sustainability and sound governance, applying ESG principles to securities lending, financing and/or collateral management functions.

The entry will highlight key features of service and why this outperforms other regulatory solutions applicable to securities finance transactions. Specify how it helps clients to meet their regulatory compliance and reporting requirements; how it helps clients to manage regulatory adaptation and to meet associated cost and time pressures.

This category is open to technology solutions that support the securities finance transaction across its post-execution lifecycle, which may include matching and reconciliation, settlement, billing, managing corporate actions and lifecycle events. Specify how this solution provides an efficient environment in which to manage post-trade risk, to handle exceptions and repairs, and to deliver high levels of post-trade efficiency (low fail rates, high STP rates), while helping to reduce post-trade costs.

A category open to a securities finance team that has been established in the past three years. Entrants should explain why the team was created, main features of its service, how its business and product/service range have grown, and plans for future expansion. What makes this team stand out? And what impact is it having on the market?
