The list is the result of undertaking market soundings and research. Nominees are now invited to arrange their pitches to win the award they have been shortlisted for with the GlobalCapital editorial team. Winners will be decided by an editorial panel and then unveiled at a gala dinner in London on September 25.

The awards honour the firms, services and products that strengthen, grow and change global derivatives markets for the better. Each award will be judged according to the nominees’ innovations in product and service, commitments to new markets, improvements in efficiency, liquidity and market stability, as well as client guidance.
