OCC Takes Silver at The FCS Portfolio Awards
in The Best Annual Report Category

CHICAGO (May 21, 2013) - OCC announced today that its 2011 annual report took Silver (the only award given) in the Best Annual Report category at the 2013 FCS Portfolio Awards presented by the Financial Communications Society in New York City on May 16, 2013.

The 2011 annual report, “Managing Risk,” conveys OCC’s successful handling of industry challenges throughout the year while remaining resolute in providing impeccable clearing and settlement services to its members, exchanges and industry partners. The FCS Portfolio Awards are based on points received. OCC’s entry was the only one to score enough points to place, no awards were given for Gold or Bronze.

"It is a terrific honor for OCC’s annual report to be recognized with this award," said Michael E. Cahill, OCC President, Chief Operating Officer and Treasurer. “It reflects the talent of those who put the annual report together, as well as the dedication and hard work of OCC's employees whose contributions are the essence of what we do.”

The report was written and edited by OCC’s Corporate Communications department; designed by O'Connor Design in Glen Ellyn, IL; and printed by Lake County Press in Waukegan, IL.
