Nominations are based upon market feedback and research conducted in recent months. Winners will be unveiled at a gala dinner in New York in the spring.

Nominees are now invited to pitch for each award over the coming weeks. A GlobalCapital editorial panel will decide the winners.

These awards honour the companies, platforms, services and products that have made an impact on the Americas derivatives market during the last 12 months. New this year are awards for industry initiatives and risk management, while we will also recognise the in increasing importance of the part non-banks play with a series of specialist liquidity provider awards.

Considerations for each category will included unique products and services, technological innovation, commitments to new markets, measures to improve efficiency and liquidity, initiatives to help improve market stability and oversight, as well as client guidance and advocacy.
