Americas Derivatives Awards 2022: the winners

GlobalCapital is pleased to reveal the winners of its 2022 Americas Derivatives Awards

After an enforced two-year break, we were delighted to be able to return to the Metropolitan Club in New York on September 8 host a live awards ceremony to celebrate the best of the derivatives markets in the Americas. It was a pleasure to see so many familiar faces, as well as some new ones.

Bank of America were one of the night’s big winners, picking up a number of awards, including the prestigious Americas Derivatives House of the Year. Meanwhile, Mayer Brown took home Americas Law Firm of the year, and BNP Paribas and Allen & Overy were the recipients of our first awards for Commitment to Sustainability.

Lee Olesky of Tradeweb was the recipient of our first outstanding achievement award. As the outgoing CEO and co-founder of Tradeweb, his contribution to the electronic trading of bonds is undeniable, as is his work in relation to regulatory reforms in the industry following the 2008 financial crisis.

The ceremony capped of months of research into the Americas’ derivatives market, drawing on written submissions, as well as wide ranging pitches with organisations from across the region. Rather than rewarding the biggest firm in each category, the awards seek to recognise growth, innovation, extraordinary effort on behalf of clients, and efforts to improve the industry.

We opened the awards research process several months ago, sounding the market to ensure our categories best reflected the changing face of the industry. This led to the addition of seven new categories. We followed this with a submission process, which we used to produce a shortlist of the best in each category.

In order to choose our winners, the awards research team undertook an exhaustive research process. We combined our research into a single global effort for the first time this year, and conducted over 90 individual pitches across 60 categories, before reconvening to pick the winners. The calibre of this year’s shortlist meant that judging was extremely difficult, but we are confident that we have chosen the most deserving winners in each category.

GlobalCapital would like to thank everyone who took the time to contribute to the awards through submissions and pitch interviews, as well as to our sponsors. Without your support, these awards could not happen. Our congratulations go to all of our nominees and, of course, to our winners. The full list is below.

    Supras learn to change in changing world

    Multilateral development banks find themselves swept up in two parallel waves of change. As bond issuers, they are having to deftly navigate capital markets that are still emerging from the end of years of historically low rates, being forced to call upon all their experience and sophistication as they fund across multiple markets. At the same time, with the pressure on to fill the huge gap in global development finance, these institutions are being asked to work out how to better use or expand their balance sheets and lend more — all while maintaining their precious credit ratings. GlobalCapital gathered some of the leading supranational issuers at a roundtable in New York City in May to discuss how best to deal with the challenges of this changing world.
