  • About

    DTCC’s BenchmarksSM service delivers a suite of powerful analytical products that enable broker/dealers and investment managers to measure and compare operational performance against that of counterparties and industry peers.

    When making the changes and investing the resources to stay competitive, firms must take into consideration multiple counterparties, a variety of workflows and numerous complex scenarios. Targeted analysis is essential to this process. Benchmarks, available to users of  CTMSM, OASYSSM and TradeSuite ID, is DTCC’s operational performance measurement solution for broker/dealers and investment managers.

    The service enables firms to access timely business intelligence by providing operational performance metrics along with tools to customize views of this information and compare it to peer and industry performance. With Benchmarks, firms can monitor operational performance across all asset classes and compare it to industry averages, as well as view individual counterparty timeliness and efficiency.  Benchmarks comprises multiple offerings within two broad categories—Trade Analytics and Business Intelligence—that can be used in combination or individually. The products can be organized at the aggregate firm level, regionally or by identifier; in addition they support customization by market, financial instrument type, location and more.
