Global Derivatives Awards 2016 — the winners

Global Derivs Awards 2016 230x150

On Tuesday, September 20, GlobalCapital held its annual Global Derivatives Dinner at Banking Hall in London and revealed the winners of its Global Derivatives Awards for 2016.

These awards honour the companies, platforms, services and products that have made an impact on the global derivatives market during the last 12 months. This year has been framed by the global regulatory push on derivative markets reaching peak velocity, with both mandatory clearing of some products coming into force as well as margin rules for uncleared swaps in Canada, Japan and the US. 

It is against this backdrop that GlobalCapital’s 2016 awards recognise not only overall excellent performance but also the initiatives of teams within firms to adapt to some of the toughest challenges the market has yet faced. 

GlobalCapital began the nominations process in June, taking extensive feedback from the market to produce a range of relevant categories and a shortlist of contenders in each. The editorial team set out once again to recognise the pioneers of the derivatives industry, the innovators and thought leaders. As ever, we were interested to hear fresh ideas, a strong narrative and evidence of firms having been prepared to go the extra mile for their clients rather than simply continuing to enjoy a big market share.

GlobalCapital’s editorial panel then visited as many of the nominees as possible, to discuss what they have been doing with their businesses and the initiatives they had undertaken over the year. Considerations for each category included unique products and services, technological innovation, adaptive strategies, commitments to new markets and geographies, measures to improve efficiency and liquidity, initiatives to help improve market stability and oversight, as well as client guidance and advocacy. 

Most importantly, GlobalCapital wanted to reward those firms who had risen to the challenges that 2016 has brought, looked ahead to those coming up in 2017 and created valuable solutions and helped provide greater clarity for the market. 

Congratulations to the winners and runners up.
