GlobalCollateral and Margin Transit Utility Earn Top Honors

Executives at GlobalCollateral will need to invest in a larger trophy case as industry accolades for the collateral processing joint venture between DTCC and Euroclear continue to accumulate.

Earlier this month, GlobalCollateral was named Post-Trade Initiative of the Year at the Financial News 16th Annual Trading & Technology Awards Europe in London, and the firm's Margin Transit Utility (MTU) earned the FTF News Innovation Technology Awards for 2018 for the Best Operational Risk Management Solution.

These awards come on the heels of top honours for the MTU as the Best New Product and a Rising Star award for Maria Dwyer, Executive Director and Head of Solutions Business Operations, at the 6th Annual Markets Choice Awards in April.

"These awards recognize that we are delivering on our mission to provide operating efficiencies to market participants and improve the stability and soundness of financial markets."
