Global Derivatives Awards 2021 — the winners

GDA20212.jpeg

GlobalCapital revealed the winners of its Global Derivatives Awards for 2021 on Wednesday night at a gala event in London

GlobalCapital was delighted to be joined by some of the very best the derivatives industry has to offer in London on Wednesday at its Global Derivatives Awards for 2021. It was an absolute pleasure to host the newspaper's first physical event since lockdown began.

While so much has changed for so many of us in terms of how and where we work and the sort of work we are doing, these awards are remarkably consistent.

As always, we seek to reward not simply the biggest firm in each category but in particular we hope to recognise growth, innovation and those that went above and beyond for their clients and in advocating for the derivatives industry.

To identify those organisations, we sounded the market many months ago to see who you considered the best in each category and whether we needed to update the awards to reflect better the changing face of the markets.

To that end, we have added two new awards to this year’s pile: Commodity Derivatives Bank of the Year and Digital Index Provider of the Year.

Having put together a shortlist of nominees for each category that we were confident reflected the best in class, our awards research team undertook an exhaustive process of listening to pitches.

They conducted over 60 of these meetings — some containing more than one awards pitch, of course — over the summer. Based on that information, we have picked who we are confident are the most deserving winners.

Thanks you to all of our sponsors, nominees and winners. Without your support, contribution and participation it would not have been possible to return.
