The ISDA Operations Benchmarking Survey identifies and tracks operations processing trends in privately-negotiated, over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives. The results provide individual firms with a benchmark against which to measure the promptness and accuracy of their trade data capture, confirmation, and settlement procedures, as well as the level of automation of their operational processes. ISDA first conducted the Survey in 2000 and has done so annually since then.
This year, sixty-six ISDA member firms responded; fifty-six of those firms participated in last year’s Survey as well. Appendix 1 lists the respondents, and Table 1 shows some sample characteristics. The Survey classifies respondents into three size groups based on monthly deal volumes across products.
