The awards recognise the institutions, products and services that have bettered the global derivatives markets during the last 12 months, making them more resilient and vibrant. The shortlist below is the result of market soundings and research by GlobalCapital that will now form the base for pitch meetings lasting until the end of July.

We now invite nominees to put forward their case for these awards, demonstrating their commitment to innovation, creating efficiencies for their clients and the broader markets as well as advocating for the improvement of the industry.

Winners will then be decided by an editorial panel, with market soundings, before being unveiled at a gala dinner in autumn.

Please see below for contact details for all awards related enquiries.
