    Exhibit 3Progress Since 1998

    • Documentation Backlogs

      • Unsigned masters greatly reduced

      • Variety of electronic confirmation services now available (SWIFT, SwapsWire, DerivServ, eConfirm)

      • Credit derivatives backlogs have declined markedly since September 2005

  • Collateral Usage and Risks

    • Usage has expanded greatly

    • Legal and operational risks have been mitigated

    • Funding liquidity risks better understood

  • CCP Clearing

    • SwapClear now clears 40 percent of interdealer interest rate swaps

    • Participants emphasize that SwapClear reduces operational risks as well as counterparty risk

    • In September 2006 SwapClear modified its default procedures to recognize relative illiquidity of swaps

  • Other Significant Enhancements to Infrastructure

    • Prime brokerage

    • Multilateral termination services (TriOptima)

    • DTCC’s trade information warehouse

    Exhibit 4Areas Where Further Progress is Necessary

    • Confirmation Backlogs for Instruments Other than Credit Derivatives

      • Equity derivatives

      • Interest rate and commodity derivatives

      • Report recommends broader use of economic affirmations and portfolio reconciliations

  • Potential Market Impact of Closeouts

    • Of significant concern to market participants and to policy makers

    • Report concludes that risks can be reduced through more systematic portfolio reconciliations and voluntary terminations

    • Report recommends that market participants should explore further steps to mitigate market impact

  • Exhibit 5 issues associated with a more centralized infrastructure l.jpg
    Exhibit 5Issues Associated with a More Centralized Infrastructure

    • Interoperability and Open Access to Essential Services

      • Interoperability defined as the ability of a system or product to be used in conjunction with other systems and products without imposing unnecessary costs on users

      • CPSS and CPSS-IOSCO standards for payment and settlement systems require “fair and open access”

  • Operational Reliability of Providers of Essential Services

    • Application of CPSS or CPSS-IOSCO standards for operational reliability may be appropriate

  • Safety and Efficiency of Centralized Payment Arrangements

    • CPSS standards for systemically important payment systems or CPSS-IOSCO standards may be relevant

    • Plans for CLS to offer payments services to DTCC’s trade information warehouse is an example of more centralized arrangements
