This information is generally unavailable from any other source.

This exclusive 30+ page report encompasses rankings by portfolio size, market share, segment leaders, new business originations, buy/sell-side activity, foreign assets as well as commentary on mergers and acquisitions, portfolio quality trends, retrospectives and forecasts for the coming year. The report also includes a comprehensive alpha-index of all Monitor 100 participants.
