Nominations were decided through a combination of research and market feedback, to determine the highest achievers in the Americas derivatives markets of the last 12 months. GlobalCapital will unveil the winners at a gala dinner in New York in May.

Applications are now open for pitches, which an editorial panel will decide the winners from.

The awards celebrate the companies, services and products that have improved the US, Canadian and Latin American derivatives markets over the last year. For 2018, we are introducing a new bank category to recognise the achievements of corporate solutions bankers.  

When choosing the winners, GlobalCapital will consider technological innovation, commitment to new markets, efficiency and liquidity, as well as efforts to improve market stability, and client guidance and advocacy.
