GlobalCapital Global Derivatives Awards 2023: the winners
GlobalCapital is pleased to reveal all the winners of its 2023 Global Derivatives Awards
On Thursday 21 September, GlobalCapital hosted its annual Global Derivatives Awards at a gala dinner at The Carlton Tower Jumeirah in London’s Knightsbridge. We were delighted to be able to bring together so many of the industry’s best to celebrate its successes over the past year.
The evening saw BNP Paribas crowned Global Derivatives House of the Year and Derivatives House of the Year for Europe & Asia. These Awards recognise its ability to adapt to difficult market climates and strength across all asset classes, underlined by its wins in the equity derivatives, clearing and custodian bank categories. These prizes commend it for adapting its strategy in line with market movements and growing its footprint across all geographies and asset classes.
Société Générale was named Inflation Derivatives House of the Year, and also took home the Award for Thought Leader in ESG. Its commitment to engaging clients on ESG strategy and its ESG-centred approach to product development shone through in its pitches.
Meanwhile Natixis retained its Structured Products House of the Year title, further reflecting the strength of the foothold the French banks have in this space.
LCH Group made it an impressive seventh win in the Clearing category and Clifford Chance was named Global Law Firm of the Year. The night’s other winners included Nomura, Deutsche Bank, Quantifi, Numerix, Novatus Advisory, SGX Group and Quantile.
The ceremony is the culmination of months of research into the global derivatives market, drawing on written submissions, as well as wide-ranging pitches from organisations across the globe.
Instead of simply recognising those with the biggest market shares in each category, the Awards seek to reward innovation, advocacy for the industry, growth and those that went above and beyond for clients.
2022 was undoubtedly a tumultuous year for the markets, but organisations from across the industry were able to pivot and continued to provide liquidity, offer tailored solutions and launch new products, often turning the volatility to their advantage.
We opened research several months ago, sounding the market to ensure our categories best reflected the changing face of the industry. This led to the addition of four new categories.
We followed this with a submission process, which we used to produce a shortlist of the best in each category. As ever, the process of choosing our winners was an exhaustive one.
A single, global research effort saw over 70 individual pitches conducted across 60 categories, before the editorial panel reconvened to pick the winners. As ever, the calibre of the shortlist and high quality of the pitches ensured that judging was no easy task, 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 our nominees and, of course, to our winners. The full list is below.
