GlobalCapital is pleased to launch its 2022 Derivatives Awards

We are combining our two sets of derivatives awards this year and have revamped the nomination process. Submissions are now open

This year, for the first time, we are running a single research process to cover Europe, Asia and the Americas — combining what were previously our Americas and Global sets of awards. We are also inviting you to put yourselves forward for inclusion in the shortlists from which we will pick the winners.

Please visit our ENTRY PORTAL to make your nominations

We have tried to keep the nomination process as simple and easy as possible. Please either provide a submission, or answer the entry questions, detailing any notable developments over the awards period, which is the previous calendar year (January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021). If you would like to upload a submission you have previously used for other awards, such as the IFLR Awards or Euromoney Awards for Excellence, you are free to do so but please ensure that its relevance to the GlobalCapital Derivatives Awards is clear. You can make your entry here.

Judges will be looking for examples of genuine innovation, business growth and working for the betterment of the derivatives industry, as well as extraordinary effort on behalf of clients. Differentiation is key and your submission should demonstrate how you have stood out from your competitors.

You will also have the opportunity to nominate other entities. These can either be your competitors, or other firms in the derivatives markets who you have encountered and been impressed by over the year — for example, a bank nominating a broker, or a law firm nominating a bank. This is optional, but it is your opportunity to play a role in shaping the awards shortlist. You may provide reasoning for your nominations if you wish.

These submissions will be used to help create the shortlists. Those nominated will then be invited to pitch to win in each category. This year, pitches will be run by Sophie Astles, awards editor, in conjunction with John Anderson.

John’s career spans both journalism and corporate communications. He has managed marketing and communications departments at such banks as Citibank, JPMorgan Chase and Barclays Capital. Starting out an investigative journalist, he has more recently written for GlobalCapital as well as Euromoney and Risk magazines.

For any questions about the awards, please contact Sophie Astles.

For commercial enquiries, please get in touch with Ashley Hofmann, publisher and business development manager.

The nominations process is now open and the key dates are as follows:

Submissions close: April 15

Shortlist published and pitches begin: end April

Deadline for pitching: June 17
