Turning User Feedback Into Improved Market Insights

The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) launched its DTCC Systemic Risk Barometer Survey, which serves as an annual pulse check to monitor emerging risks that may potentially impact the safety and resiliency of the global financial system. The survey is scheduled to launch on Monday, September 17 and remain open for three weeks until closing on Friday, October 5.

The survey provides a list of systemic risks, which could all be considered potential high-impact events, for ranking by respondents. The survey encourages participants to offer forward-looking responses with the goal of identifying risks that may affect the global financial system in the foreseeable future. In addition, the survey includes a new question for the 10-year anniversary of the financial crisis, asking respondents to assess how the health of the financial system has evolved over the last decade.


“The Systemic Risk Barometer Survey helps us align our priorities and initiatives with those that have been prioritized by our member firms,” said Michael Leibrock, DTCC Chief Systemic Risk Officer. “We also use the survey results to help drive discussions at our client events so we can better promote transparency, foster collaboration, and exchange best practices on the current and emerging systemic threats impacting the financial services industry.”

Survey results are targeted for publication in last quarter of 2018, and will be discussed at DTCC outreach initiatives such as our Client Risk Forum, Systemic Risk Roundtable Breakfast and Risk Advisory Council (RAC).
