The shortlist of nominees was compiled by GlobalCapital's awards research desk after consultation with the market and those firms named are now invited to pitch to our editorial team.

This year, we have expanded the awards to take in two exciting parts of the derivatives industry — commodities and cryptocurrencies.

The former, of course, lies at the very roots of the derivatives industry. But over the last year, as the coronavirus pandemic shrunk global demand and the recovery boosted it, demand for commodities — and therefore, their associated derivatives — has been at the forefront of the global economic revival. 

Meanwhile, there have been few bigger stories in finance over the last few years than the rise of cryptocurrencies. While the debate rages on as to how useful cryptocurrencies will turn out to be — and what they are really worth — the one certainty is that they are now part of the financial landscape.

Therefore, GlobalCapital is looking to name the Commodities House of the Year, for the best bank in the commodity derivatives market, and the Cryptocurrency Index Provider of the Year.

The pitching process is now open and the key dates are as follows:

Pitches begin: May 24

Deadline for pitching: July 9

Winners revealed: September 29
