There are also no listings for a counter-party or non-performing lead for any company in these rows. However, we identified through a document from PwC that the chief security officer is typically responsible for securitization. Therefore, if a company does not list an officer, executive, vice president, director, or manager of securitization or any position responsible for non-performing or counter-party loans or investments, we searched for and provided the chief security officer for the company.

Your Research Team Applied The Following Strategy

To find information on the five additional large global or national consumer packaged goods manufacturers, we looked for a list of top global CPG manufacturers and found the information. The article provided a list of top 100 consumer packaged goods companies by revenue for 2017. From this list, we included top companies that have more than $1 billion in revenue for 2018.

To find the HQ location of the companies, we looked for information on their official websites, annual reports, company databases, and found the required information.
To know whether the company has a global head of supply chain, we looked for information also on the company website, annual reports, professional job sites like LinkedIn and found the required data. Some companies did not have a global head and instead had a country or region head.

As regards multiple ERPs, we combed through the company website, annual reports, press releases, and industry reports and found the required information. Then, we analyzed the various processes of the company like inventory and order management, accounting, human resources, customer relationship management (CRM), and found if the company has single and multiple ERP software solutions. Some companies have moved to single ERP solutions.

To know whether the companies have own or outsourced manufacturing plants, we looked for information on the company website, annual reports, press releases, and articles and found the required information. However, it was found that some companies have both own and outsourced manufacturing facilities.

Five additional large global or national financial services companies that have over $1 billion in revenue are Charles Schwab Corporation, Royal Bank of Scotland, UBS Group AG, Capital One Financial Corporation, and Standard Chartered PLC. Additional information such as their most recent estimated revenue, location of headquarters, the existence of non-performing loan & counter party risk group, and dedicated head of securitization are provided in rows 27-31, columns A-F and J of the attached spreadsheet and in the summary of findings below.

Large Global or National Financial Services Companies

Charles Schwab Corporation

  • Charles Schwab Corporation most recently reported annual revenue of $10.1 billion.
  • The firm is headquartered in San Francisco.
  • The firm doesn't have a non-performing loan group.
  • Charles Schwab Corporation has employees specializing in counter party risks.
  • The firm does not have a single head of securitization but has a comparable position of Chief Risk Officer.

Royal Bank of Scotland

UBS Group AG

Capital One Financial Corporation

  • Capital One Financial Corporation most recently reported annual revenue of $28.1 billion.
  • The firm is headquartered in Virginia.
  • The firm doesn't have a non-performing loan group.
  • Capital One Financial Corporation has employees specializing in counter party risks.
  • The firm does not have a single head of securitization but has a comparable position of Chief Risk Officer.

Standard Chartered PLC


Research Strategy

We consider the title of Chief Risk Officer to be comparable with the head of securitization, to be consistent with previous research.
Royal Bank of Scotland's 2018 annual revenue is calculated by multiplying the reported figure of 13.4 billion British Pounds with the exchange rate of 1.285 on the date of approval of the report, which is 14 February 2019. This gives us 13.4 billion x 1.285 = $17.2 billion.
To confirm for the non-existence of non-performing loan groups in the companies, we first performed a direct search on their official website for any information on the group or related products/ services. We then expanded the search to any web articles/ publications that mentioned the existence of such groups. We also attempted to triangulate by searching for employee's Linkedin profiles. Finally, we tried to look for any recruitment efforts for such positions on the web that might suggest the existence of such a division within the companies. We concluded that the companies do not have a non-performing loan group, only when all the mentioned attempts uncover no relevant information.

All the requested information is both provided in the attached spreadsheet and in the research findings below.

Major Financial Services Companies

  • The firm does not have a counterparty risk group.
  • The firm does not have a sole Head of Securitization (or comparable title), nor more than one Head of Securitization (or comparable title) for different geographical regions.

Kohlberg Kravis Roberts

  • The firm does not have a counterparty risk group.
  • The firm does not have a sole Head of Securitization (or comparable title), nor more than one Head of Securitization (or comparable title) for different geographical regions.

Apollo Global Management

  • The firm does not have a counterparty risk group.
  • The firm does not have a sole Head of Securitization (or comparable title), nor more than one Head of Securitization (or comparable title) for different geographical regions.

  • The firm does not have a counterparty risk group.
  • The firm does not have a sole Head of Securitization (or comparable title). Rather, the firm has Co-Heads for its Global Securitized & Structured Products group.

TD Bank

  • The company reported its annual revenue for 2019 in Canadian Dollars ($41,065,000,000), which equates to approximately $31,603,191,662 USD. We converted the CAD amount to USD by using this currency converter.
  • Though the company doesn't have a non-performing loan group, it is engaged with non-performing loans.
  • The company does not have a sole Head of Securitization (or comparable title). Rather, the company has more than one Head of Securitization (or comparable title) for different geographical regions.

Research Strategy

To find five, additional, large global/national financial services companies that meet the specified criteria, we first looked for lists of the largest private equity firms and banks worldwide. Specifically, we used this list of the largest private equity firms and this list of the largest banks. For the companies on those lists, we checked their annual revenues and selected ones that have at least $1 billion USD in annual revenue. Next, we ensured that each company has either a global or national (U.S.) footprint, based on the locations of their multiple offices. The headquarters locations we found came from the companies' websites, Linkedin pages, and/or a listing in a company directory.

We then proceeded with our research by looking for information about whether the companies we selected have a non-performing loan group and counterparty risk group. We searched each company's website and looked for information about each of those groups. Additionally, we looked for any articles that might have mentioned such group within each company. We also checked on Linkedin to see if we could identify such groups through job posts or current employees' Linkedin profiles. From all those searches via the aforementioned sources, the only applicable result we found was that TD Bank has a counterparty risk group. The last part of our research focused on determining whether each company has a sole Head of Securitization (or comparable title). We looked for that information on each company's website (including their leadership team pages, when available), on Linkedin, and in any articles that might have mentioned such. Though none of the companies had a sole Head of Securitization, we were able to find that Neuberger Berman Group and TD Bank have more than one Head of Securitization.
